we can all agree that the 360 is going to win, but what are the chances of actually getting one considering there are only 1000. will going online at 8am(pacific) gurantee me a 360. i want one badly and that price is hard to beat.


Why couldn't it be me....somebody has got to win out of the 1000!! I do believe you must have broadband or higher to get through, because it will be off the chain!! Dial up and some types of dsl just won't cut it. :cheesy:

Ugh .. I remember the Amex Wish List and the US Airways discount promo airfares (like $50 to Rome) .. I never got in on those .. I'm on a DSL line and would be on the page like 2 minutes before. It was sooooo frustrating.
