My friends and i have different ways of purchasing games; personaly i much rather walk into a shop and pay over the counter. This is really so i have it there and then.
However, some friends i play with, and members of my Posse order there games online. As innocent as this is (and in some cases really useful if a store is out of copies) the problem is that people who order games offline tend to get them a day before release.
I think this is a bit poop, as i like to play them and get a bit jelous that everyone is playing what i've been wanting play for a while.
If anyone can shed some light on why they get it early then please do,
It really confuses me lol =P
