Late Monday, two Gamestop employees checked receipts at the door near 72nd and Dodge Streets, separating into two lines the people who came in early to pre-pay and those who still needed to fork over $59.99.
As the clock struck midnight, one employee brought out a box of games for the prepared. The other waved inside the short line of folks who needed to pay. Some stragglers asked if there were extra copies for people who hadn't pre-ordered.
The answer was no.
