EB Midnight Launches - what happens?

So i'm considering going to the midnight launch (my gut tells me to stay in bed & go the following morning), But what actually happens, does everyone just pile into a line await untill you get your console and then go?  Or is there giveaways?  Should i go dressed as Harry potter?

 

On a serious note - i do have a fast pass, but am i better off staying in bed?

 

What are your experiences with these Midnight events?

Depends on your local EB. Best to call them to find out whats happening at their store. I went to the Wii launch at Chadstone (largest shopping centre in Australia) and it was pretty busy.. they had a few Wii's set up to muck around on, but essentially everyone got a ticket based on when they arrived and then come midnight the queue formed in order of ticket. I think I was out of there by 00:45. I had EB call me today to tell me they're doing a pre-buy ticket system where you can go in and pay off the console ahead of the launch and that will make it faster for you on launch day. I told them I won't be picking it up until Saturday anyway =)

If you have the fast pass then you go into the priority queue but that queue is first in best dressed. I guess it depends on what you will do if you get it at midnight - just put the box on the ground and go to bed or set it up, download updates and then play it until the sun rises.

I just got a message last night from EB saying they're doing the midnight launch. All of my friends IRL use PlayStation so I would feel like a bit of a loser going by myself.

Well i headed to EB for the midnight launch. There were 45 people all who had fast passes. I walked in at 12:01 and walked out at 12:10.  It was very fast. I ended up back in bed at 12:30am.
