The release of Rock Band 2 is almost upon us, and the fine Xbox 360 users on these forums will probably be interested in getting Rock Band 2 and getting it as soon as possible. I did not find another thread like this, but if it exists then feel free to shut this down.
If you have a confirmed midnight release for Rock Band 2 (disc only for 360) on September 14, please post it on this thread. I will compile the posts as often as possible on this first post to help out other RB fans looking for a store near them.
Please post in this fashion:
City, State - Store
(ex.: Cedar Brook, NJ - Funcoland)
I will compile a list by state as posts come in. Let's get this rolling.
From what has been posted, 24-hour Wal-Mart locations should be releasing the game at midnight. Check with your store for details.
Some users have been told that GameStop as a company will not be holding midnight releases for the game because it is disc-only and only for X360, so make sure to double-check with a posted GameStop before Saturday night!
CHECK BLOCKBUSTER LOCATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! MANY BLOCKBUSTERS ARE SELLING THE GAME AT OR AROUND MIDNIGHT, BUT MOST HAVE VERY FEW COPIES (USUALLY ONLY 1-2 COPIES PER STORE FOR PRESALE).
Gilroy, CA - Wal-Mart SuperCenter
Sacremento, CA (Antelope Rd.) - Wal-Mart
St. Petersburg, FL - Walmart
Villa Park, IL - Gamestop (This is not true)
Downers Grove, IL - Best Buy (This one is)
Framingham, MA - Game Universe
Garfield, NJ - Game Crazy
Macedonia, OH - Gamestop
Altus,Ok - Wal-Mart & Hastings
San Antonio, Texas - Blockbuster
Austin, TX - Wal-Mart (Rt. 620 location)
Lynnwood, WA - Gamestop (possibly incorrect, check location for more details)
Richland Center, WI - Wal-Mart
Note: There may be duplicate stores in the same city, so if you live in a big area make sure to double-check before pre-ordering.
Fyp. I live in the town next to villa park and have pestered this gamestop for the last 3 days. No midnight release....JERKS!!!!
