Caryn Law at Activision wants to remind everyone that tonight at midnight certain Best Buys will officially start selling copies of Doom 3. There are only 8 locations in all, across the United States.
Apparently if you happen to be anywhere near the Plano, Texas location, you will get a double treat tonight as not only will Doom 3 be there, so will some id software employees--though we have no idea which ones. In all cases Activision will be on hand to hand out prizes for early attendees, including a Doom 3 t-shirt.
Monday, August 2: 10:30 p.m. — Fans line up for a chance to purchase DOOM 3. Prizes will be given away to the first 100 people in line.
Tuesday, August 3: 12:01 a.m. — DOOM 3 for Windows on sale.
The following Best Buy stores are participating in the midnight sales:
- West Los Angeles - 11301 W. Pico Blvd.
- West Hollywood - 7100 Santa Monica Blvd.
- Chicago - 1000 W. North Ave.
Washington D.C. Area:
- Sterling, VA - 45575 Dulles Eastern Plaza
- White Marsh, MD - Nottingham Square
- Richfield - 1000 West 78th St.
- Westbury - 1100 Old Country Rd.
- Plano - 2800 N. Central Expressway
So if you happen to live close enough to one of those and you can't be without Doom 3 any longer (and most likely will end up playing it into the early morning), then head over.
