I don't know about GameStops anywhere else, but the one near my work (Penn Station 34th St., New York, NY) will be having a midnight launch for Assassin's Creed.

Now, what I'm concerned about is that they have the release date as November 14th 12:00 AM. Anyone else heard the same thing?

I don't have any Gamestops near me so, I couldn't tell you whether or not mine is doing the same but... about that release date; that's a bit unsettling.

Is it the 13th or the 14th, for **** sakes?

Maybe some places consider midnight, the night of the 13th.

In Russian anyway, if you were to say 12 o'clock at night on the 13th you would be referring to 12:00 AM on the 14th.

Has Canada ever gotten anything first?
Even though the game's made in Canada...I doubt it will be released first in Canada. If anything, it will be same time as in the US.

From the sounds of it, I believe it's shipping on the 13th but will be available on the store shelves by the 14th.

Unless someone puts it out early like Toys 'R Us and Bioshock... (here's hoping).

It's a shame but i'm sure most places will be like that. It's not worth opening shop at midnight unless you got about 100+ people preordered. Oblivion did a late night release when it launched in my area in Australia, Brisbane but only because a console (i think the Wii) was being launched that night. I should probably mention that everyone i saw that showed up was only interested in Oblivion though.

Its a shame really that there won't be an offical midnight release. I've waited for 2 ****ing years for this game and I have to wait until the store opens....

You think THAT'S bad? With Bioshock they got it a few days before the release date and they wouldn't sell it until the release date. Americans were already playing it, the game was in stores but i couldn't buy it cause the release date hadn't come.

The sooner I get it the sooner you get to hear about me playing it and how awesome it is. So its a Win Win situation if the gamestops have a midnight release. I say we all email Gamestop and tell them to have a midnight release.

I can't remember a midnight release for the Wii or Oblivion (Brissy as well).

My local EB won't be having a midnight release, no chance. Maybe in the big cities, but I doubt we'll get a midnight release here... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Might have been another console, all i remember is it was a console i didn't care about. It was in the EB shop in Strathpine that did it in my area. Not sure if any others did it.

I emailed ebgames and they told me that it will be shipping from their warehouses on the 13th thus it should be in the stores on the 14th, however he also told me to contact my local store. So i guess it will be out wednesday the 14; its better than having it delayed i guess.

How about those of us who don't live near a Wal-Mart?

The closest Wal-Mart I can think of is upstate NY and I'm not about to drive up there.

It depends how hyped up the Gamestop manager is about the game. The regional manager over here is driving to Atlanta to the shipping hub for our region and picking up the game as it get's flown in the night of the 13th, so he would like to do a midnight on that date. We shall see, no biggy waiting till morning to get it either.
