Midnight Openings For Halo 3: ODST at GameStop and EB Games Canada

By Paul Hunter

Proving that Halo 3: ODST is looking to be as big as a console launch, GameStop and EB Games Canada have announced via their weekly flyer that there will be Halo 3: ODST midnight openings in Canada. The participating stores will join the 3,600 in the US that will also be hosting launch parties.

According to the ad, at the event gamers can enjoy "a number of great offers at the GameStop launch pad" whatever that means.

While there is no list of stores that will be open in Canada, the fine print reads:

"Some GameStop and EB Games Canada locations will be opening at midnight while other locations will be opening early. Please see a sales associate at the store nearest you for exact times."

Looks like you'll have to do some legwork if you want to find a participating store. You know, why is it that whenever GameStop announces US midnight openings they always provide a handy PDF file containing the participating stores, but here in Canada it's always check the store nearest you?

Seems to me that their US counter-parts are a little more organized.

I think it's because we're just an afterthought to the Americans.

Sadly, in some cases you're probably right.

Canada always takes a back seat, simply because we are a smaller market...
