    Last week a PlayStation Move arrived at my house, the day before its official release. Right now I'm installing Civilization V which is due for release tomorrow. It's very exciting. Thanks very much Amazon :)

    Edit: Dammit. I might have Civilization V a day early but Steam won't let me play it. At least non-PC games work as soon as you get them in the post.

    Sims 3 was leaked out onto torrent networks a few weeks before its official release, if I remember correctly.

    I thought Amazon didn't even start shipping things out before they were officially released, though. Still, lucky you.

    I didn't do anything special, just pre-ordered from Amazon.

    No. Sometimes you even get store credit for preordering! :D

    Blahh imn just gonna buy them from my local game store Gamestation. Where they now do a point system like Game which then you can redeem the points for money off items in store. Also when the Wii was released Call of Duty 3 and a few others came out before the release date in store! Hopefully they do this for the 3ds!
