EB Games and the 15th

Aus/NZ General Discussion
I spoke to my local EB Games worker and he was surprisingly knowledgable about D3. He said:
The store opens up at 8am (Can pick up as soon as they open)
Can install at 1PM
Can play at 5pm.

All correct information. But 8am is one hour before the 9am Blizz stated. This is important for the CE people as you don't want to miss out or anything getting your CE. So there's still time to contact your local EB Games to see if your local is opening at 8am or 9am.
I believe its 1am AEST this evening we can install
Hmm you might be right. Who knows. I just wanted to point out the 8am/9am thing.
I spoke to my shop on Saturday and he said he couldn't sell it to me til 9 even though they opened at 8. Might just be select stores that are selling earlier, not like anyone would know. Can install it at 12.30am Brisbane time tonight as well.
12:30am Brisbane time on Tuesday 15th you can install, the 8am thing seems to be depending on the store, some stores which don't have many orders still open at 9am, others are opening early to appease the masses.

1 day, 2 hours 44min...
eb stores are notorious for breaking the rules. at least in tassie!

That was the best part. Has anyone else noticed how useless most game store staff are with just about anything in store? A friend of mine asked the manager of GAME if he could preorder cataclysm and the manager had no idea what cata was. The manager! The poster for the game was even hanging in the front window.
I got a sms from them saying the same thing. Shop opens at 8am but I cant buy it until 9am. Personally I will just sleep in and get there when I ever I get there. I preordered the CE so I expect it to be there no matter what time I arrive.

just a heads up EB sold my CE edition of sc2 on the day of the release and said I didn't turn up early enough (I live in a rural area out buggery) then said there might be still one left over the other side of town, well they lied. I got refund and standard edition and a game store has never got anymore money out of me.
It's much safer to go and get it ASAP.
They do sometimes pull a dodgy and sell it for higher price to a begging customer.
Better safe than sorry tbh.

Thanks for the heads up, that sucks if they do that to me they will never get my money ever again
Is there no honor left in this world?

yeah stupid question.
You should probably avoid buying it at EB though, unless you're getting the collector's edition through them. Big W have it $30 cheaper than EB (though you might have to bug the staff since they're lazy about getting stuff to the shelves immediately), even Harvey Norman, Dick Smith and JB Hifi have it $20 cheaper than EB games.
Who's doing the count down at eb games at 8am tomorrow?

I will be at my local store. No idea if there will be any other stuff going on or just a boring count down.
Which local store?
