Ok well, my launch night was nothing like anythign else ive heard so you guys are in for a treat i guess.
Well to start thigns off i work for gamestop, and i reserved my system 2 days after they started takin reserves. i was told i was on the first shipment for sure, and didnt think twice about it. However, people started reserving the system like wildfire in the next 2 or 3 weeks. this is where the trouble comes in. i guess in this process someone lost my preoreder or took it out of the box they were in, and lost mine. well on the saturday before launch i whent there to pay it off and they couldnt find my preorder, but my manager agreed to add me to the list because he was the guy who sold me the reserve and remembered how much i put on it. so i am now at the back of the list and am told im getting my 360 AFTER christmas. complete bs. anyways, i figured i would go wait in line on the 22nd at midnight at best buy, so i could get a system. I was "Planned" to leave on vacation to alabama on the 22nd at about noon to go to thanksgiving with the g-parents. my mom decided that we shold leave at 10:00 on the 21st. so bam, i couldnt go wait in line and lost a chance to get one in the process. on the way to alabama ( i live in texas) i stopped at about 9 or 10 walmarts and a few targets but to no avail. To make matter worse. one of my best friends bought a 360 premium at walmart and than sold it on ebay even though i told him i would buy it from him for 500. but i guess money gets the best of people and he sold it. Enough emo kid mood though, ill get one soon enough
