I got a text today from Gamestop saying that my copy of GTA 5 will be available Tuesday 12:01am Tuesday, and to come in at 10pm Monday to finalize payment.

 

Is this necessary to go in at 10pm first to finalize it, or should I just go at midnight?

you need to come early if you didnt pay and you have to get their recipt to get the game, but if you are going on tuesday when they open at 10 am you just pay it off then.   they do that so people can just give them a recipt and leave quicker.   It helps the line move faster :D

The guy at Gamestop said I should come in at 10 if I want to get out early. So I'm gonna go at 10.

If you have it fully paid off and have your receipt and everything you can just show up at midnight. Im not trying to stand at Gamestop for 2 hours lol.

Mine said come in at 6, pay it off and get my queue number in order to be first in line. He said if I do that, I can leave and come back at 11:30 when they start lining people up and they'll call it receipt numbers by groups. It's great because I basically show up last minute and still get to go in first LOL.

They do this for people you have pre ordered it that way you don't have to stand in line with all the people who didn't. If you go in at 10 and finalize your purchase they will give you a receipt and you come back at 12 and stand in the line that has no transactions in it. that way all you have to do is show them the receipt then they give you the game.

Definitely call the Gamestop you're going to tomorrow to get the exact details for that particular store. The guy at our store said to come in after 5 to pre-finalize the sale, another store is doing theirs after 9.

I'm not sure what to expect. There are two Gamestops in the same mall where I live, so that should help keep lines rather short (assuming both have a midnight launch). There's also another Gamestop a few minutes away. So with three + Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target, etc. I can't imagine there being obscenely long lines considering this isn't exactly a huge metropolitan area.

 

I'm already paid in full. I'd like to be able to show up at midnight and be out of there by 12:30 or so.

The thing is with those retailers is if you live in a big enough area those will be the only ones for miles open for a midnight launch.

this person hit the nail on the head call your store ask what time you can finalize your receipt or if you can of in in the morning pay off your game. Then see after if pay off your game if they will finalize it right then I already paid mine off so I just need to get it finalized copy of the receipt

Do you live in jersey by any chance? Cause there's two gamestops in the mall by me and I never understood why lol

I thought I went to the only mall with two gamestops.

That's not true. Every gamestop by where I live is doing midnight release. I don't live in a very populated area. It was crazy

cause when I went to some random gamestop in the middle of no where a couple months ago to pre order gta v I asked if

they were doing a midnight release and they said most likely because they had like over 200 pre orders.

I got a text today from Gamestop saying that my copy of GTA 5 will be available Tuesday 12:01am Tuesday, and to come in at 10pm Monday to finalize payment.

 

Is this necessary to go in at 10pm first to finalize it, or should I just go at midnight?

Yes, You have to go in that day to pay off the game and you will most likely get a number for the section of line you will be in at midnight. the sooner you go pay the earliest number you will get. My Gamestop said they will start doing this at 3 pm tomorrow. Enough time to do that, go to work, get off at 11 and make it back to Gamestop :p

 

But if you go to the midnight release you have to go in and pay it off tomorrow during the day, most likely in the evening sometime. If you aren't going for midnight and will just wait for the morning, then disregard the text. You will be able to pay the rest the next day picking it up.

 

All this is for is to streamline the midnight release to get everyone in and out as quick as possible without having to pay or do anything.

I called about this, stating I had already paid my SE off.

The guy said it was just a reminder for people who HAVNE'T paid off their pre-order.
If you have your copy paid for, show up anytime after 10 and you'll be just fine.

​Although, take your receipts just incase.

Best place is to go to a random Walmart and pick it up. I did that for Black Ops 1 and only waited in a line with 10 people while other stores like GameStop had lines out in the f*ckin streets!
I'm only going to GameStop for this only because I already paid in full my preorder of the CE a long time ago.

if you already have your copy paid off you still need to go to your gamestop and get another receipt, the finalized receipt, that way it makes the line move quicker.

It doesn't matter if you have your copy paid off or not already. You need to pay it off by 10 I believe, but you have to show up to get a number, and the sooner you do that in the day the closer to the front of the line you will be. If you show up at 11 because you already paid off your pre order, you may be stuck at the end of the line way down the street.
