HALO 4 Release Day
GAMESTOP had 'HALO 4' but the guy behind the counter still chose to tell me that I should have pre-ordered it, and that a copy which was already opened and stored in a grubby sleeve behind the counter was the best I could hope for since I hadn't pre-ordered it. It cost €60, and he assured me that I'd be back to pick it up but couldn't guarantee that the game would still be there when I returned.
HMV had many copies of 'HALO 4', still in the wrapping, & were more than happy to sell it to me for €45 with zero additional bother.
End result: I'm writing this while the the multiplayer servers find me a 'Capture the Flag' match. Thanks, HMV!
