I am supposed to have the game pre ordered from Amazon like I mentioned in another thread but the order isn't showing up at all for me no matter what I try to do. I tried Gamestop and Best Buy and they didn't have in store pick up options available because I'm not gonna pay $10+ for next day delivery. I went to Gamestop earlier and they told me that they had them in but aren't taking pre orders anymore but I can't buy the game without having it pre ordered. She told me I had to wait until the standard edition came out. So my question is was this chick mistaken? Are we really not gonna be able to walk into any store and buy the collector's edition tomorrow when it is released? Again sorry if this has been answered or discussed but all these angry threads makes it hard for me to find the answer I need.

You should be able to walk in and buy one, they can only guarentee a copy to those who pre order the game, and if they happen to have any left over, it's your lucky day.

If their is any left over, why would they not sell it? what would they do with the unsold Copies, i think she's mistaken (or New).

You should just be able to walk in tomorrow and as long as they have left over stock you should be able to buy as you would any other game, pre ordering is just ensuring you have a copy come release day, walking in may be worth it but doesn't guarantee you walking away with a copy

Edit : was beaten to it lol

Well is there honestly that high of a demand that they would be sold out everywhere? Unless they ordered only enough for the pre orders and none whatsoever to stock in the store but I am doubting that.

Stores tend to over stock on stuff like this, better to have more stock then not enough (people would not bother going to them otherwise, thinking they wont have it in) but it would be the demand in your area also. i can guarantee here in the UK where i live stores are more likely to run out of Fifa and CoD before an FF game or an MMO

Gamestop will only hold someone's pre-order for 48 hours after release. Also sometime people cancel after the order has gone into SE. So it is possible one might come available in the next two days.
