Beta Codes went out to GameStop Employees

General Discussion
I have 2 buddies who are store managers at GameStop and they both got codes last night for signing up at the Vendor Show in Vegas last month, so alot of invites went to the employees.

*****EDIT*****

The point Im trying to make is that even though they had SOME opt ins receive codes, GameStop employees would be the next to get in under F&F and Media/Press. So Im thinking a full opt in wave still hasn't gone out yet that doesn't have anything to do with the industry.
But do they have Battle Toads for sale?
Will they give beta key if we pre-order?

No, but they recently had a fire sale on morals.... Unfortunately, they're completely out of stock now. :(

Yeah I was a bit bummed when I found out. It sucked even more talking to him while I could hear him playing it.
I think it's time to accept that the first wave of public opt-ins have gone out. A whole bunch of folks were on the forums yesterday confirming they are in, not all of them work for game stop.

But, don't lose hope, they will still send more invites. Don't ask me when, I hope this week sees some more but I'd say start of next week should be a safe bet. Considering that invites have gone out at the start of the last 3 weeks now.

Being a Gamestop manager is a horrible job. The only thing that really makes it worthwhile is the big Vegas managers conference where all the major game companies kiss your butt for 3 days so you will push their games more to the general public.

You have nothing of real value to offer game companies so they don't give you anything for free. These guys do, so they get free stuff that you want, and would probably appreciate more too.

Welcome to the real world. This is how it works.
