Destiny Glacier White PS4 Bundle Limited Edition and my first ever Midnight Launch

Last night September 8th 2014… I went to a midnight launch for the first time in my life!  It only took me 40 years to do so… but I am proud to say “i’ve done one” in my life… Will it be my last… ummm I’m not sure…

The story begins with me heading into Gamestop on a Wednesday (the week before) to see what I could get for a PS3 Slim model I just wasn’t using… I don’t use ebay for video games anymore due to all the scams and what not… So Gamestop and selling to friends is my only option… The super helpful guy told me there was a deal going on for the new Destiny game or even the regular PS4.   I’d get 150 bucks for my ps3 slim if I put it towards a new PS4 system… I asked him if I could bring in two systems and get 300 bucks and he said “sure, what do you have?”    I told him I could trade in a xbox 360 i am not using… He said “as long as it is the 250 gig you will get 150 for that one as well”    That means I get 300 bucks off a brand new PS4….   I had a few days to think about it… Well at least I thought I did…

I brought the little flyer home and stared at it… I was thinking to myself… Do I really need another system?  I have the Xbone and Wii U already… Will I even have time to play it…  It kept me up all night stewing over it…

The Next morning I woke up (because I like to sleep on decisions like this) and decided what the hell… I’m going for it… and I want the PS4 Destiny bundle with the Limited Edition Glacier white PS4...

I head to the Gamestop after work… We take care of all the bizness and we hit a road block… It was to late to Pre Order the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Well the super cool gamestop guy Will totally got on the phone and made some calls to find out what he could do for me… So he figured it out… I picked up the regular ps4 that day… brought it home and couldn’t use it or open it!   I had to call first thing Monday morning to find out if I could return the ps4 and get the PS4 Destiny Bundle…   Will answered the call and said… Yes, but get here by 6pm today (Monday 8th, 2014).

So when I left work… I was hoping for no traffic and I was in luck!   Go there at 5:45 and was the 3rd person there… They had one… I mean 1 ps4 Glacier Model in stock and the rest where pre orders…  I snagged that $h!t up but couldn’t go home with it… I had to come back at midnight to get it… If I didn’t they won’t hold it for me… Because technically I pre paid for it and already owned it… But they couldn’t give it to me till September 9th 12:00 am…

So that left me forced to go to my first ever Midnight launch!    It wasn’t what I was expected… it was a lot more fun then I could imagine.. It felt a lot like Christmas!   Everyone was in a super cool mood… guys where tossing a football in the parking lot… tailgating and everyone was eating Wendy’s burgers…

I did a little video of recapping the night so check it out below… and will I ever do another Midnight launch?  As much fun as it was… I will go with a definitely maybe?
