Guide to Breaking Street Dates

Before a major game releases, are you one of many hard-core fanatics looking for that one magical copy of the game you are seeking which has broken the street date? To get you primed for NBA 2K9's release, Alexander Senate has written a guide to breaking street dates. Be sure to comment with your own tips!

Quote:
"It seems that every time there is a highly anticipated game being released, forum-goers always ask these inevitable questions: “Who got it? Where did you get it? What did you have to do for it?” These questions are a necessary part of our Internet lives, since we are all trying to one up strangers who are clearly not as cool as us. After all, if they were as cool as us they would have the game too. "

7 Eleven. I'm in South Jersey. When you pre-order games from the 7 Eleven the guy calls you as soon as he receives them. I got Madden on the Thursday before the official date. If there is a game I want early I hit the 7 eleven.

This is actually really great last year i got NBA 2k8 2 days early. And you are correct major corporate stores are really uptight about street dates and such, and is really hard to even convince someone to possibly give you a pass.

So in search for NBA 2k8 i went ahead on looking for local little video game shops Ive previously seen just cruising around my city in jersey ( jersey city). And i started to look up the phone numbers 1 was getting it a day early from the release and the other 2 days early so of course i went with the earlier one.

I called the same store again supposedly they should have NBA 2k9 end of September i guess ill just wait and see ^^

Wow.

This article is priceless.

It takes me back to just last year calling all around my neighboorhood searching for 2K8 seeing that a few on the boards here had it already.

Then driving around to each store that said they didn't have it hoping some shmo had put it out mistakenly.

Now I know I was waisting my time and gas, well I knew this last year really. But in Houston I don't recall seeing a mom and pop game shop in so long it is not even funny. Gamestop and EBGames have run them ALL off.

Dammit.

Is it October 7th yet????

You serious?! When did they start selling Video Games???

Does anyone know if they know any places in Sacramento, CA were I can get this game early? I called the nearest FYE and they said they dont sell games anymore! I want this game!
