Yeah!!! Thanks to this website, I kept checking with Bestbuy and Lo and behold they had them. I work 50 mi (one way) from home. So I sent my daughter to the local Bestbuy and I went to the one near my job. So we got one each. I went back to turn my in for a refund, and was offered $50 more than what I had just paid for it. :), all the while another guy told me I could get up to $1000.00 on ebay for it, so I left with mine in tow. But I'm going back up there on my lunch and get a refund for mine, I'm not in it for a profit, but if someone happens to offer me more, I'm going to sell it.. LOL!! :)

you can't get much for them on ebay any more. The bottom fell out of that market because so many places got them in stock. I'm sure Microsoft decided to get one last batch out for the very end of the Christmas rush. My Toys R us has a stack of them. You can get about $100 over cost on ebay right now. It was launch day they went for an insane amount. Glad you got one

I don't know where you are, but Microsoft must have shipped 80% of their stock to your Toys R Us store. The Bestbuy @ home only had 27 and the one near my job had only 16. The Walmart's in my hometown got a few in on Monday & Tuesday and I do mean a few (I've been calling around like someone crazy:D ) The walmart near my job had 6 that came in yesterday and the Target near my job got 19 of them in yesterday, neither got any today.

I just came in from Wal-Mart. The local store has had 18 core units since this past Sun. I was given some interesting info by the guy working electronics. They get there deliveries from UPS and NOT here warehouses. They are delivered middle of the day. Chances are that they will recieve another small shipment TODAY!!! Also Best Buy here in Athens, Ga. has had 4 different deleieveries since the ad that ran this past weekend.They are expecting a few more before X-mas

Does your Xbox360 really work. I heard some rumor that Xbox360 having a problem on their game system.

Congrats!! I'm sure your kids will LOVE you Xmas morning. We'd already spent way too much money, so getting one was not an option for us, but yesterday when we were standing in Circuit City, an announcement came over the intercom that they'd just got their Xbox 360's in and if anyone wanted one, they were to head to such and such a spot. I was a little upset because if I'd have known in advance that it was possible to get one, we wouldn't have bought some of the things we'd gotten earlier. Oh well, we'll get one at the beginning of the year. I'm glad to hear that a couple of you were able to get your hands on one though!

i got mine today but i don't know if i want to keep it or not. it was real good timming a lady brought back a premium system for return not open and i was standing there tring to pm some dvd's and it came up for sale. What luck didn't have to wait in a line for 12 plus hrs.:g_dance: :gd_pineap wondering if i sould sell it on ebay they are going for around 600.00 and they won't ship more out until feb or march. Hit while the iron is hot? It would help with some of the spending i have done.
