I work at Best Buy, and the main office just approved of any store who wants to do a Midnight Release for Tekken 6, DJ Hero, Forza 3, and Ratchet (they all come out on 10/27)!
The Best Buy I work in, Best Buy in Corona California, has just approved of a Midnight Release, not only that, but I want to host a Tournament right before we sell the game that night.
Tekken 6 PS3 Tourney
*Matches will be best 2 out of 3, Finals will be best 3 out of 5
*You can bring your own stick
*Tourney starts at 9pm so best to come in early that night to sign in, (Time start may subject to change depending on how many players)
*Winner will receive Tekken 6 for the system of their choice, or can put that value towards the Limited Edition Bundle
*2nd and 3rd prizes are still being negotiated, most likely it will be gift cards.
Also, once we get the game in, I’m putting the game on display the moment we get it so everyone can play it in advance. So I hope we get the game in on Thurs or Friday :tup:
Check your local BB’s if they are going to do a Midnight Release.
Oh yeah, there is a high possibility that BB is also going to get the T6 Stick Bundle since it shows as an active inventory item.
We tried to do a Midnight Release and Tourney for SF4, but that failed miserably because SF4 wasn’t hard street dated, but T6 is :bgrin:
More info about the Event will follow in a few days once I get the ok. Rules may subject to change.
One more thing, Best Buy is offering Reward Zone Gamers Club Members a chance to win a T6 Machine just by signing up for their club, it’s free.
Thanks to Wild Man X from the TZ forums for the info.
