Gamestation in Liverpool (Lord St.) are having a midnight launch, a friendly staff member called me yesterday to tell me about it. They're having a costume competition to win a copy of the game aswell, although that kind of thing doesn't appeal to me in the slightest. My friend thinks I'm pretty sad for wanting to go but I don't really see the problem with it, and it can't be any worse than the FIFA10 launch at Asda that I went to, a 90 minute wait in a slow moving queue with morons literally fighting each other at the front when it was announced there might not be enough copies for everyone.
I would have thought a few places in Leeds will have a midnight launch, Game, Gamestation etc. but I think you have to have pre-ordered to go to the launches at those stores. A 24 hour Asda would almost certainly have the game available at midnight, not sure that HMV will have a midnight release though. Best bet is probably to ring up or call into a few places and ask them about it, and if you need to pre-order to attend then obviously you can do that beforehand.
