You can do either one.

 

However, considering it's going to be a midnight release, they suggest that you do pay it off beforehand, if you are going to pick it up at midnight.

 

If you have it paid off, then at midnight you can just walk in with your receipt, they hand you the console, you walk out.

 

Otherwise you have to wait in a different, longer line.

 

If you're just going to pick it up at some time in the day, really makes no difference.

why would it matter if its midnight or daytime. I think you can just pay it off when you go pick it up, midnight or not.

Because when they do midnight releases, they prioritize the line with people who paid it off first, and then people who have yet to finish paying.

 

I'm saying if he goes to midnight release and doesn't want to sit in line all day, he should pay it off in advance. But if not, then just pay it off whenever.

Well they will, but you will most likely have to wait longer than the people who have their receipts ready (because anyone who doesn't have it paid off, goes to the back)

For midnight releases, some stores will open for about a half hour from about 11:15 to 11:45 for people to pay off the pre-order, then chase you back out the door and re-open at midnight to allow you to pick up your purchase.  Most will not do this, however, and nearly all do, in fact, require the pre-order to be paid off ahead of time (they don't even open the cash drawer at the release 'party' - they simply have access to the computer system so they can check off the people who pick up their purchases and print the final purchase receipt).

It depends on the store.

 

The Gamestop I always go to does allow you to pay it off, but like I said, you are forced to the back of the line (and it's a LONG line).

 

I arrived at 10pm and was 6th in line when I last went to a midnight release. The line was massive though. Had police to watch over the area in case people got robbed.
