Is there any way to reserve a copy of a pre-release game online so that it can be picked up at the store on the exact day of release (instead of paying $9 for overnight shipping)?

The point was to save me driving there simply to reserve it.

They won't guarantee you a copy unless you put $5 down first. Which usually involves driving to the store.

Is there something terribly wrong with driving over there and putting money down?

then just go there the day it comes out, or goto wahtever store. unless yer waiting for the next gt3 i'm sure you really dun need to reserve a copy.

i guess you never goto the mall then? but the more i think about this reply, the more i'm thinking i'm wasting my time.. *sigh*
