OP
I don't think the emails went out yet, but... (Edit - Emails went out.)

Nintendo World Store.
Rockefeller Center.

Sunday. Nov. 11, 2007.
8:00 PM - 12:00 AM.
A Mario-themed carnival event, seemingly held outside in Rockefeller Plaza.

12:00 AM - 2:00 AM
Early sales of Super Mario Galaxy.

If you've preordered, you do NOT have to show up that late to pick yours up, they hold preorders for up to 30 days.

Preorders will net you that Mario coin bonus that's been popping up at GS/EB, while supplies last.

Rock on NY.

PS - I bought Fire Emblem today, bitches. You should have too!

Edit - Damn it. That should have been 'Ready'... :/

I don't understand why someone would pre-order a game like Mario Galaxy... have you ever had a Nintendo game (besides really niche stuff) be sold out everywhere except for at launch of a system?

I dunno, I never have. Pre-orders are for stuff like Atlus games.

AFAIC if a store can't get enough stock in then they don't deserve my custom.

I'm considering going, and I have to fucking work the next day, so it's rather pointless to go! :/

Coin coin coin coin coin coin coin coin coin. Preordering costs little, and nets you a little bonus as well as peace of mind. Also, this is a flagship game coming out on a system that's still challenging to procure.

2 minutes away at Circuit City/Best Buy/Walmart/Target there is said game waiting to be purchased.

I mentioned this is the official thread a couple of days ago. I'm definitely going, although probably not until 11 at the earliest. I just want the game early.

There's not enough Wiis yet for SMG to be an instant sellout.

Aww. Are they still taking preorders?

I didn't do it for SMG since NWS always seems to have stacks upon stacks of games.

I imagine so, but I didn't ask. They'll certainly get a fuck-ton of copies of the game, but I have no idea about the coins.

Yeah, unless Buzz Aldrin's at the party, I'll probably just show up close to midnight to get the game and that's it. I really don't need my picture taken next to a pedophile dressed up as Mario.

EB/GS was the first store to announce this preorder program (then I saw TRU do it in their ad), which has been known for a few weeks.

I was planning to preorder the game to get the coin, but I am most likely gonna order it from Amazon where I can pay $49.99 (rather than $54 I would have to pay at other stores due to sales tax).

I say you go.. so you can re-organize NYC GAF so none of us have to.
:lol Well, it's just... i thankfully have off Monday and Tuesday... but man, to go all the way to New York JUST for a game. I don't know if I am that geeky... but it IS Super Mario Galaxy. Decisions, decisions...

:p Usually when I go to New York, it's an all day affair... I'd feel like it was a real waste JUST to pick up a game. if I go, I have to figure out something else to do there :lol

Penguin was one of the NY GAFers who joined us for the Meet up a month ago. I organized that meet, so that's what he was referring to :p And yes, I did fix your thread title :)

I still think Toys R us is the best way to go with this game.

But getting it early even if simply a day or two is really tempting.

Probably worded it awful.

But Amirox was the one who set up the last NYC GAF meet up in Oct or Sept.. sometime this year.

So was saying if he went, he could do it again instead of someone else.

You know that guy, Triforce? That guy's crazy. (Yeah I waited in line at the NWS to shake hands with Miyamoto, what are you gonna make of it?)

What is stopping someone from going to TRU and buying Super Mario Galaxy and the gift card, returning the game right away, and then using the gift card to buy the game for only $25 (+tax)?
Nothing.
