    Does anyone know how JB usually handle midnight launches? A lot of info out there about what EB is doing, but JB don't seem to have a clue.

      For outside stores it will just be a matter of waiting outside. Probably get there before 11pm
      For inside stores I recommend you turn up around 10-10:30 at the closest outside entrance. Either there will be people waiting there already, or people waiting inside closer to the store entrance proper.

      Then just have fun, chat to people around you, and listen to instructions from staff as to what the procedure will be.

      Note: This is based on my experience of the Wii console launch and other lesser launches (all at EB Games), as well as educated guesswork.

      Call the store about 8PM on the night. You should get someone who knows what's going on. It's pretty important if you're planning on going to a large shopping center based store since they may shut certain carparks/entrances for late night events.
      For instance Highpoint has the cinema right near their JB Hi-Fi, so I'm guessing the same rules would apply to JB midnight launches there as the cinema. Everything but that floor and the two directly attached parking lots get locked up. If you were to go into one of the other carparks you'd find yourself having to take a long walk in the dark, empty areas around the outside to get in/out, and that's not a smart thing to do carrying $700-ish or a brand new XBOX One and some games.

      My JB said drop in early - pay for everything and they'll give me a receipt with a barcode and bag it all up in prep. Then when I go back at midnight it is simply scan and walk out.

      Think it helps that World Square will be open right through - they're not closing up and re-opening.

      Warringah store texted me saying theyre opening @ 10pm. lol wtf?

    So, I just checked my pre-order receipt and a curious thing has occurred that I am not sure if standard or not. I appear to have only been charged for the pre-order deposits on everything with no reference to the full price on things and the guy behind the counter implied that everything was in order to pay x amount of dollars to pick it up (where x = about $400 less than the expected cost) Should I just keep my mouth tightly shut except for the "here's my details, lemme just pay x" line? I will report back with results on Friday!

      Don't stress it - mine is the same. They usually don't include the final price on the pre-order because t is subject to change.
