I was hoping that Gamestop would sell Resistance 2 at midnight. I thought about getting it at Walmart, but then I remembered that I had already payed for my preorder in full for Resistance 2. I guess I'll have to wait an extra few hours. I don't even know if Walmart had a midnight launch for Resistance 2.

I mostly buy online, I went to wal mart to look for LBP last week they did not have it. GameCrazy did though. My girl wanted to check there first since she had some things to get. I was pretty sure the best bet would be GameCrazy.
