Re: Long Lines for Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Release!
Are you actually implying that there will be lines for the Pokemon games? To be perfectly honest, games rarely have lines. Sure, they have pre-reservations in which people show up at midnight (but I doubt they'll hold midnight releases for D/P), but I highly doubt there will be floods of people to get these games.
Don't forget that HUNDREDS of stores will carry the game (most likely hundreds in each city) - to mention a few, Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, GameStop, EBGames, Software Etc., Babbage's, FYE, and even some convenience stores will! I know some 7-11's carried Halo 2 and several Xbox 360s for months after their releases, so I'm certain some convenience stores will carry it.
Don't panic. If they run out, they'll have more in stock in less than a week. As far as I have heard, there has never, EVER been a shortage of games upon release. I've heard of console shortages, but never games themselves.
