Yeah, because the half hour difference between 10:30pm and 11pm would just ruin you.

Of course, you could always try getting up earlier in the morning, and catch the store before it closes.

It's still stupid, and based on the bizarre idea that kids won't have access to their console during that period. How bout asking parents to lock down their credit cards a little more tightly?

The fact that it was a leaked early release is the reason for the mass downloading numbers, not weak DRM or growing numbers of pirates. I mean come the fuck on- even people who typically or ALWAYS purchase their games would have been interested in this release, who wouldn't want a chance to play a game before it even hits shelves?
