Worse case is I just download it from Sony store. Amazon and Best Buy have really dropped the ball. I could see if they didn't physically have it but this is a joke and there isn't any communication going on. I mean did the Covid destroy the email at Best Buy?

I'll have someone go over the communication tomorrow and see if there have been any updates. If we could get a response from corporate in here that'd be great too. There was at some point an event calendar that showed an early release, but that's no longer listed.
At the end of the day the only company has the ability to allow an early release is Square Enix, it's very possible that they mandated no one do an early release since most Gamestop stores are closed to make it more "fair" for other companies that don't have the option for an early release.
If I find anything out I'll let you guys know tomorrow, or hopefully we can get a response from someone that handles these forums.

Sorry for my typo! I called the EAST Orange in Southern California.
These early releases are always kind of hit or miss in terms of communication even when there isn't a pandemic.
At Death Stranding's early Thursday night release they would only let people pick up the collector's edition and told everyone that was there for the standard edition that they had to come back on Friday. Which makes zero sense obviously...
