Poll: Console midnight premiere will you be there? (52 votes)

yes 23%
no 77%

Will you be there camping out to get your system at midnight? I personally cannot wait to get my ps4 but i probably won't take a day of work or school in order to camp out but if im not scheduled for that day i will definitely be there in line waiting until 12 to go get it!

Yea, planning on being there for my Xbox One. I don't live in a super heavily populated area so there's not really a need to camp out or anything. Go up to my Gamestop (one of the few staffed by super helpful people) about 10pm, finish my transaction and talk with some friends til midnight. then it's back home to hook it up!

I won't be there, but only because of Amazon!

I will be there waiting... until my pre-order is shipped by Amazon.

No, because midnight launches are banned where I live.

I'm not buying a new console, but I wouldn't attend a midnight release anyway, mostly cause I'd have work the next morning so I wouldn't even get to play it.

Mmnah. Amazon.

I don't have to camp out. I have been assured I will get my system. And they only allowed a certain number of pre orders so I so not have to worry about lines.

GameStop at 11pm. System at midnight home at 12:20 games for the rest of the week.

Heeeeeeeeell noooooooo. Amazon will be shipping that shit to me.

I thought about it, and I was planning on it, but now I'm not sure.

Maaaaaaaybe? I live in a smaller town, so it wouldn't be absurd to do such. Depends on how I feel that night. I would probably err more towards going, though.

#12 Posted by Hunter5024 (5508 posts) -

I intended to, but I ended up being out of a job all summer so I wasn't able to get a preorder in, and I bet it's too late now.

No because I like to drink at night..

No, because midnight launches are banned where I live.

Really? Is it like a city or state thing? I'm curious about this.

Nah, i'm thinking of just ordering from Amazon soon-ish. At the very worst it'll be there a couple days after the console is out.

I imagine where you live as the town out of Footloose. Is dancing banned as well?;)

From my decades of experience, one thing that is always a constant is that launch system owners get screwed over somehow. Because of this I will wait until Christmas 2014 to purchase a console.

Nope, because I'd rather have it delivered Day One by amazon.

If I do end up preordering a new console (unlikely), it will be most definitely be though Amazon. So while I won't be up at midnight waiting for [insert console], i could see myself taking the day off to mess around.

No, because midnight launches are banned where I live.

That's interesting. What's the reasoning for them being banned?

#20 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2205 posts) -

No because where I live you're pretty safe to just go into the store that morning and pick up your preorder.

#21 Edited by probablytuna (3524 posts) -

Nope, I don't even know if I will be getting one on the first week either.

#22 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

Man, I'd kind of like to. Had good times sleeping in a K Mart parking lot for the PS2 launch.

#23 Posted by falserelic (5278 posts) -

Man, last time I went to a midnight launch was for the original black ops. It was cold and we had to wait outside in a dark parking lot. Me and my friend started getting nervous when dudes in a car kept staring at us, mothafuckas kept looking like they was about to rape somebody. Ever sense I never went to a midnight launch again.

#24 Posted by geirr (2469 posts) -

Nope, cuz Microsoft just decided to fuck over their fans in various countries including mine.

But I wouldn't go anyway, I have a Ps4 preorder and camping outside in Norway during winter gets pretty cold.

Was going to do it for the hell of it and because I've never done it before, but it turns out I'll be in the wrong country. :(

Pretty much this, plus the fact that I can wait till next morning.

I understand midnight releases are some form of tradition to some people though.

#27 Edited by Nights (602 posts) -

Nope, that's what pre-ordering is for. I was 17 when the 360 came out, and I waited inside a Walmart for 18 hours with a couple of my friends. I'm not putting up with that shit again.

#28 Posted by bigjeffrey (4710 posts) -

Maybe

#29 Posted by BaneFireLord (2907 posts) -

Nope, that's why I preordered a launch day system. Standing around a GameStop at midnight to get a device I'll probably be too exhausted to use by the time I get home isn't a good use of my time.

#30 Posted by thatdutchguy (1267 posts) -

Nope.

Hell no.
