GameStop Launches Mass Effect 2 And MAG At MidnightS

Video game retailer GameStop has deemed both Mass Effect 2 and Sony's MAG worthy of keeping its employees up past midnight to get them into gamers' hands.

More than 2,500 GameStop stores will be opening late on Monday night to dole out preordered copies of Mass Effect 2 and MAG to eager fans, with certain locations hosting various themed games of skill to keep players from bashing down the doors before the clock strikes twelve. Customers at GameStop locations where it's safe to be outside that late can expect a tank building challenge, a commando dress up contest, a grenade launch, and more, while those who frequent seedier stores will instead stand outside until around midnight, huddled together for safety.
