That is still RETARDED.Originally Posted by WTF_GREENTEA
Just a heads up, I went by my local Costco, and the supervisor called me in his office, because Ive gone by every day since the 2nd (when they were supposed to receive it) and showed me that there is 48 consoles headed to Gwinnet, GA tomorrow, and 72 headed to Morrow, OH. Both are supposed to arrive today from what I saw on the inventory on his computer. Maybe someone who lives there or near there can go by and get one, unlike myself! and maybe pick one up for me, and not rape me with inflated prices and jus make me pay retail Let me know if anyone gets it at either location. Both locations should receive them tomorrow. Lemme know if you guys find em there today!
Heh, I'm smack in he middle of that... Hopfully that means I will get mine from EB Games eiher tomorrow or Monday? Jesus, I've waited so long the wow factor has pretty much ben crushed by all the waiting.Originally Posted by dgizzy
Oh well, at least PDZ looks good...too bad it's still not Oblivion.
So, Sunday, December 11, and I still have no XBOX 360. Anyone gotten "2nd shipment" preorders yet?
My 360 that I got off amazon is coming in a week WOOT!!!! and I'm also buying one from BB on the 18th to sell on Ebay for those frantic last minute Christmas shoppers that need one
This shortage BS has seriously pissed me off. I may not get one at all if I don' get it before this coming Wednesday. Stupid Microsoft needs to get their sh it in a pile before they decide to launch a console...
Seriously, they should have sent 200,000 less consoles to Japan and sent them to the U.S. instead. Then they may have been able to generate a "shortage" in Japan while also supplying more consoles to people who actually want one. Bad call Microsoft, and no one cares about the Japan market. They can keep their 15% share, because its full of soft-core porn Japanese anime weirdos. I am sincerely sorry us Americans enjoy blowing someone's head off more than pressing a button to have a character execute a preselected move...
ummm uncalled for?
The most pathetic person I've yet to encounter

It's sad really to see people like this get so detatched from society.
Completely. I am just going to be pissed if I don't have one before my trip...Originally Posted by Smaxor5
I am also very angry for the "every week restock" that Microsoft officially stated. That was a HUGE load of bullsh it.
its a videogame system. i enjoy these forums people let it all out because some company is behind on their sales... WAKE UP... its a popular item that everyone wants... its also shopping season... and they could have delayed the system to make sure there was enough and then everyone would be *****ing because they delayed it... just shut up and wait... get a job or something to do in the meantime
It wasnt offical just Major Nelson said it and since he works at MS everyone takes everything he said as official.Originally Posted by stevo836
Dude, you'd be pissed if you didn't have your 360 by now. I preordered 2 weeks after EB games started taking them. This is ridiculous.Originally Posted by mannymix03
Um, actually ya it was official....Me and a few other people on this forum got an official Xbox newsletter in our email....and it stated that they were going to start shipping out systems every week...and we got that email about, um, 3 weeks ago....I agree with you, though, that every1 takes Major Nelson's words as official, I mean, he works as an Xbox Live employee, not an employee who distributes themOriginally Posted by SovietSlayer
Hah, I bet the original XBOX 360 shipments to Japan don't completely sell for another year.Originally Posted by T-baggins
Note: the following pictures were taken of the stock at the Yodobashi store at around noon. They are not taken of the same carts, but of different 360 carts placed in various locations behind the counter.Originally Posted by T-baggins
what are you trying to prove. it still didnt sell out in japan.Originally Posted by SovietSlayerbecause this guy doesnt live there http://cgi.ebay.com/MICROSOFT-XBOX-3...QQcmdZViewItemhas published a first hand reports of the Japanese Xbox 360 launch from Osaka and from Tokyo. The stores in Japan appear to be full with Xbox 360 consoles and the lines were moderate to not existent. The Xbox 360 was not a sell-out on launch day in Japan

people lie so much. another camp date at best buy. this is going to be great.
So...anyone jumped in recently?
Not yet. Made some phone calls today. All the stores are claiming to have a shipment this week...Originally Posted by stevo836
Circuit City had a second shipment already....not a lie, states so on their website "We had some, but now they're gone, please check back periodically..."
MS may very well have been shipping out new shipments every week....but did you ever stop to think that they didn't say EVERY market would get a shipment, and didn't specify how many they would ship...CC prolly stocked up abit, knowing they would just sell out right away, so just keep checking websites, as thats where you will be able to buy them first...
Ya, websites sell out very fast, it's better to check stores, and no, stores have not gotten weekly shipments, at least not in my city. Gamestop has many bundles being released (there are actually 2 out right now on the website). The only thing is, the bundles are wayyyy too much. I mean, I understand why they're so much, since they come with an extra controller, 7 games or so, memory card, and play and charge kit, but still, why don't they sell smaller bundles that are cheaper than $1000?Originally Posted by Shatterdome
Here's the link to the cheapest bundle (steel bundle), which is $1000
Well even that bundle, I added it to my cart and it says ETA of feburary 28th 2006 :P
What I mean about checking websites moreso then the stores is that most huge stores have a main warehouse, or two that ditributes to the individual stores, but that's also where the internet shipments go out of....so chances are they will fufill internet orders before shipping units to stores, as it saves them gas and manpower...
Just got a call. My preorder is in! 2nd shipment is here guys!
Awesome, are you going to get it now? If so let us know how it works out, and if it has any glitches/bugs/crashes.
Hopefully they got rid of a few of those GAY defects.... 360's launch dissapointed me, even the store demo systems were breaking down
[I like breaking the rules, so my sig is gone!]
I'm actually at work now. Its gonna be the longest 3 hours ever...
Ouch, sitting at work when you know you could be playing 360....i'd be "feeling ill" forsure ;) good to hear you're getting it tho...
