Have to ask

Why is NCAA being released on a Monday night/Tuesday Morning? wouldn't it make much more sense to have people drive out on midnight on a friday or Saturday night?

I believe most DVDs/CDs/video games get released on Tuesday, and I've read that not all Gamestop's are having a midnight release so it wouldn't make sense to release for them to release differently when the reason to release differently isn't guaranteed to happen.

Re: Have to ask

Maybe it's so it can be hyped a bit more heading into the weekend... If everyone hears from people that have the game and it gets hyped up more and talked about then by the weekend maybe they will be more likely to go buy it?

Ya I totally pulled that out of nowhere...

This. Very few games aren't released on Tuesdays.
I wish they'd release ALL games on Fridays, you buy it on Friday and then you get to enjoy it for the whole weekend!

Re: Have to ask

It all has to do with shipping. Not everything that comes to big retail stores come by company truck, somethings come by ups. Ups don't deliver on Sundays.

Therefore they chose tuesday just in case they shipment didn't come in by the weekend, they can get it that monday. Being I use to be in retail in electronics, I have seen it many times that big ticket item didn't arrive at the store until monday night due to road construction or weather delay.

This.

I think all items are shipped during the weekend. By Monday everyone gets their stuff in. At this time the stores get their stock ready. Then Tuesday everyone can sell the items because every store has it ready to sell.

Some stores get their shipments in sooner than others. This is why they release things on Tuesday rather than Monday.

Re: Have to ask

Everything pretty much piggy-backed onto the album release dates. Music is released on Tuesdays due to the sales records being released on mondays.
