How does Wal-Mart deal with new release video games?

Asked by Tank8131 (106points) August 20th, 2007

Do they put them out right at midnight? Or will they wait just until someone decides to stock it?

The reason I'm asking is because I forgot to pre-order Bioshock and I figure the best way to get it tonight or early tomorrow morning would be Wal-Mart or Target.

funny thing is I had the exact same problem so I went to the local walmart around 2 in the morning the day it came out they didnt have it stored in the displays but the employee In there said at 12 the start unpacking all the new releases coming out…but only automatically put in the display the items that were considered hot sellers everything else gets put up throughout the night before 8–9am. I actually had her search all theboxes (there was like 20) until she found the box with bioshock. my cuz said I should feel bad about making her look for it, but turns out at the local gamestop all of them were either sold out or they only had preorders. didnt feel to bad after finding that out.
