When I preorder the Switch, I plan on going to a brick and mortar store to hopefully be able to attend a midnight launch. However, the presentation doesn't take place until 11PM EST, which is after all brick and mortar stores will have closed.
If I don't plan on preordering online, is there any threat from scalpers? I don't want to have to experience what people who wanted the NES Mini had to live through.
If it helps, I'm probably going to preorder from GameStop US and don't understand how their preorder structure works with regard to online vs in-store orders.
