Found this on another forum. Apparently people have done this in the past...created these vouchers and taken them in to Walmart a week in advance of a games release date and convinced an unknowing employee to give them a copy of a game before it was released.

My nearest Walmart is 30 minutes away...anyone care to try this out?

Is it really worth the potential legal issues (fraud) to get a game a week early?

oh man, the field day EA could have if said walmart ever got caught. They send EA reps to count the amount of Maddens at each gamestop throughout the week before its released.

I work at a gamestop. They probably don't send them out to every gamestop cause that would be logistically too much. But we did have guy come in and check to see if any of the seals were broken or if the boxes were opened.

We do get them far ahead in advance. Almost two weeks. It doesn't make sense. (and as a big madden fan, its very tempting)

What can happen if the manager took one?

You know thats like "what happens when you push the red button." In all likeliness, nothing. A very ridiculous series of events would have to occur for anyone of importance to know a store employee took a copy home, but it would not mean good things for the store if a higher up found out. I know the game cannot be sold until the release date because the transaction will be logged on the system.

Side note: I wonder if EA can use Xbox Live to track whether or not someone has played the game before its release? I mean all xbox live accounts track what games are played and when, its possible they could be scouring through XBL to see if anyones playing it right now. This is all just random thoughts however.

I was actually holding the game this afternoon. is anyone else curious how WVUs fullback got ont he cover of the PSP version? Like, really? Couldn't get someone else?
