Do we know which stores will actually have SSB:M tomororw?

So do we know if SSB:M will actually be in stores tomorrow? Lots of people seem to think it's a ship date, but Nintendo has it as an official launch date. Stores like Best Buy and Target always release two days late, but game specialty stores like GameStop should have it on the actual launch day. GameStop had MGS2 on its actual release date while other stores in my area did not.

[edit] I'm sorry. I should have been clearer. Super Smash Brothers: Melee. I usually frequent Nintendo forums and they all know immediately.

SSB:M = Super Smash Bros. Melee. I assure you Toys R Us did not have this game at launch day. SSBM is easily mistaken with SMB, which stands for Super Monkey Ball. So whattaya say we all stop being lazy and actually type a word or two instead of using acronyms.

Your best bet on getting Smash Bros tomorrow would be Babbage's or Electronics Boutique.

I think he meant that they had games on their launch dates, not Smash Bros. specifically, implying that when Smash Bros. DOES come out, it too will be available on its launch day.

You should be able to buy it at EB, Babbages and Toys R Us tomorrow! (Dec 4th). The other stores like Best Buy and Target will be an additional day or 2.

Release dates are almost always really shipping dates. That said both K-Mart and Wal-mart have advertised for the 5th. Some of the video game stores may have them into day if they got their shipments early.

Please don't expect this title to be available today. It is a SHIPPING date. Give the games some time to get there. If you do find it, consider yourself fortunate, as it's rare.

Leave the stores alone for today with your phonecalls. I feel sorry for them having to answer the same SSBM question 1000 times.

Plus this has been the way it's always been, with new releases on Tuesday.

Does SSBM have online capability? I know the CUbe modem has yet to come out, but I HOPE they at least left the option for online play open.

Imagine the fun of battling others over the net.

Not sure about number of items. But it's 10% of media, 20% of wireless cell accessories... and one more 10% pretty much the "Anything" type coupon. It's December 7-9th. I got 4 coupons in the mail.
