Pretty sure that the way a preorder works is the store usually gets like 100 copies, but adds copies for every preorder (so if they get 50 preorders, the factory/distributor would send 150 copies to that store) so unless you called pretty far in advanced, and the stores worked in good communication with each other (they won't, believe me, each store act's like they're basically independant from one another) you're going to have to pick it up at the store it was preordered from.

Yeah, I'd assume it would need to be from the store it was pre-ordered in. Getting mine from Best Buy (shipped today, but unless the mail gods decide to bless me, probably won't arrive until Wednesday :(), but according to their site, it has to be same-store pick-up if you go that route, as it'd be only in their local computer system. If BB would be like that, can't really see how GS would be any different.

You could always call though, and if so see if they could work something out between stores, but I'd not hold my breath.

Unfortunately you would have to go to the other store because certain stores have a certain amount of pre orders taken, If I were you though If you don't really care for the scorpion dlc you can probably just go buy a non pre order copy depending on weather its a Kollectors or tournament then you would have to go to the store you place your order, If your lucky you can just tell the cashier that you had pre order and he or she might be nice enough to just give you the code anyway

Wasn't Mileena the Walmart pre-order bonus? Should have pre-ordered there. :) Actually, was wondering yesterday if that's where you were getting it from. :)

I think eventually all the pre-order bonuses will hit the Xbox live marketplace sooner or later, Like red dead redemption and few other games

Im with you on this one, I would really like to get this game tonight, but unfortunately my EB games is not doing a midnight release, due to not having enough pre orders... so I will be picking up my copy at 10am tomorrow.

Sorry hun. I got mine from BB, specifically because it had SZ as the pre-order bonus. It'd require thousands of dollars to part me with it. :) Plus, I'm not exactly a fan of Scorpion. Although maybe you can find someone willing to trade. Or just wait, as undoubtedly the outfits will be made available eventually.
