We brought you the news of GameStop's tight initial shipment of the Switch, meaning grabbing a preorder from them could prove difficult. Now another rumor comes in, not from our source, that points to GameStop trying to inform their customers of stock as early as possible.
According to a source at NeoGAF, stores will be posting allotment numbers on their front doors after closing time. The day isn't specified, but Thursday night would make the most sense. You would want to line up Friday morning after the presentation, rather than GameStop holding back on preorders all through Friday, then posting store allotments on Friday for Saturday preorder.
Now that's quite a bind for people that want to purchase from GameStop physical locations. Do you rush to your GameStop, check out the numbers and hang there? If you do, you'll be watching the Switch presentation in the cold, at night, on your phone! Perhaps if your GameStop has a few people lined up, you could make yourself a little Switch presentation party!
