don't you have 24hr supermarkets or stores in America/Canada?

In the uk you can get games at midnight in most places.
If you get it from tesco's or asda it's cheaper than from game or gamestation.

Resistance 2 coming out the same day in the US ?

so like its opening for both of them? lol

its not fair that U.S get it like 4th of Nov and us Europeans wait until the 28TH !!!

Resistance and gears were coming out with a 4 day difference? Not sure but that was the release difference a week or so back.

According to Gamefly, Gears of War comes out the 7th and Resistance 2 comes out on the 4th. At least in North America. Did the developers change the date again?

midnight? bad idea
the kids won't be allowed to go outside at midnight.
try midday.

I see this has been turned into a resistance thread but the story is about Gears so The kids won't be able to buy r2 at midnight but the adults will buy GoW2.

It's actually not that common in Canada for stores to open up at midnight. The only games this year that this happen for was GTA IV and Metal Gear Solid 4. Usually when there is a midnight launch it's a huge event.

The launch of Gears of War 2 is a huge event ...
