10 select Best Buy stores, covering 6 markets -- Chicago, Washington D.C., Miami, Los Angeles, New York and Dallas -- will offer the game at 12:01AM on Aug 3 as part of a special midnight madness sale.

Does anyone have ANY info on this? Which stores? And details will be appreciated.

prolly all the way up in yuppieville north side chicago....meh. Every "sale" like this is up there...and always in a suburb outside chicago...never in the actual city as stated. Weak. I'll stick to the southside and buy it the day of aug 3rd. WTF am I gonna do? Buy it @ 12:01 am go home and go to bed anyways lol. Not sure about your neck of the woods their in NYC...do u have a "main" superstore BB? prolly be that one. Call around and ask. =)

I did call them, they said for now it's planned as a regular game launch, aka just load up the shelves. There is another store in Brooklyn, but I doubt they will be doing midnight madness sale there.

Well for the one in NYC the one that i would guess would be the BB on 23rd and 6th. This is just a guess, but it seems the logical choice

8 hours? Man...why not just wait.oh..say...8 hours and buy it at a near by ebgames or gamestop? =) I'm complaining cuz i live on the south side of chicago and figure they'll have it on the northside..or just outside the city up north...thats 45 mins. lol.

Actually, I have a feeling that most EBs and Gamestops will have a midnight opening for the game as well. They've done that for a few games (GTA:VC comes to mind) and almost all major consoles launchs (still have fond memories of getting my Dreamcast at 12:10 AM).

I wish the EB in Rockford would do that, but the guy there said that there wasn't enough people that had preordered it. Maybe since it's been a few days since the gold annoucement there'll be more of 'em and they'll change their minds, but I doubt it.

If it's anything like BB midnight madness movie DVD launches, it will be the BB in Schaumburg and Lincoln Park. I wish they'd freaking do one in Aurora as that's the store that's closest to me.

Yeah but I bet you could go around the corner and find it in a brown paper sack at a "PC game software outlet" two weeks ago. ;) :D

I'm guessing if best buy does the midnight thing, it will be advertised in this coming weekends ad. Just like they did for matrix revolutions.
