I was thinking of GAME, due to their pre-order bonus, but ShopTo are cheaper (plus I have £5 on my card for them)

So where are you buying it? I really hope ShopTo get a pre-order bonus

I'm still wondering. I wanna buy it at a place that is most likely to deliver it the day before (seeming some deliver superfast and get it to you the day before) and obviously value for money. Thinking Shopto too, but I'm waiting to see if any more pre-order bonuses get announced anywhere..

The cheapest place possible. I definitely won't be getting it on day one so I don't really mind where I get X/Y, though if I do get a job in GAME then I'll probably buy it there because staff discount.

I'm hoping GAME will do a midnight release to be honest.

If not, I'll probably pre order it from them anyway since they have the bonus and I know they'll deliver it on time.

I'm using game as they always seem to be the most reliable, plus I can just visit them after school and pick the game up rather than waiting for a delivery.

I pre-ordered from GAME back in May and it was only recently that they announced the Pre-order bonus, so I was pretty psyched about that!

I know I'm actually Irish but hey, close enough. Unfortunately for me, I think Gamestop are the only real place nearby that I could buy it from.

I'm still in two minds about whether To preorder it or not though.. any suggestions ?

GAME, mainly because of the nifty pre-order bonus. I'm a sucker for pre-order bonuses.

I think with everyone's suggestions, I might also go to GAME for mine, pre-order Y and then head to the store in the morning for X. Although I'm moving soon and have found there is no GAME or any other store that sells games (weeps)

I've recently pre-ordered Pokémon X from GAME when I went to Specsavers last week since they are both places in town, so I got my game for October and bought myself a 3DS, with Luigi's Mansion! <3

75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

the problem with eshop is that the game is apparently over 2gb, so you'll need To update your sd card To a bigger one if you haven't already....

Just a question cause I don't know where else To ask that people will actually answer: is the mega Torchic distribution a wifi one or do we need To go To gamestop/other? I'm in Ireland and won't get it if it's a shop distribution, therefore I'm concerned....

Considering it's worldwide, I assume it's Wifi.
