Kinect Launch UK
If you’re keen to get hold of it at the earliest opportunity, live in the UK and fancy braving the cold, GAME and Gamestation will be opening 100s of stores at midnight. ”Stores open at the discretion of your local manager” and “there may be changes” to the list of those planning to participate, according to the retailer.
The stores generally open their doors around 11.45pm – some may open earlier to help you with your trade-ins. Tills will be open from midnight. Stores will generally close around an hour later. Depending on customer demand, your local manager may choose to close earlier or stay open longer.
Is your local store on the list and will you be picking up Kinect this coming night?!
