that sucks, I don't know if I am going to get mine until Christmas either, though (money issues). Honestly I don't think they will be as short as they say. I think they are just trying to hype it up. Seriously, if every Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target get one to put on display, they should have enough. I didn't preorder, but I heard a neat trick I might try if I end up being able to afford it.

The Mor will get his whenever Oblivion is released. It's been pushed back until Febuary.... Drats.

yeah, Best Buy, Target, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, Virgin didn't take preorders. So you just have to go pick them up.

EDIT: well acutally Virgin did take preorders, but I don't think anyone even knew they were going to be selling them.

From what I heard Wal-Mart is passing out cards at 10:00 PM on the 21, and then you turn the card in to get a 360.

Walmart did take pre-orders, online, they've been sold out for weeks.

I think they are just sold out for online orders, their website says this:

We're sorry, but we've SOLD OUT of our initial launch quantity of Xbox 360 hardware. However, the Xbox 360 will be AVAILABLE IN WAL-MART STORES AT 12:00 AM on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22.

When they get better games. If they have PGA though out I may have to look into it cause that game is super.

thats my thought, no rush....I still have Madden 06 for the PS2....I won't be buying a new console at least until it's clear enough to compare both new consoles...

I dont want to rush into buying the 360, only to find out that the PS3 was better...

Imagine having to buy both,....that's 1000 bucks spent

im gonna get mine next christmas, when the price goes down and there is less of a demand for it, plus i already got stuff i want for this christmas.


Also on a side not when was the ps3 suppose to come out? Cuz if the ps3 is coming out in the summer that would be perfect this way i can decide between the ps3 and xbox, but if the ps3 comes out at christmas then i would to reserve it to get it for xmas and i really want to wiat til one of my friends get it to compare.

Halo 2 is going to be backward compatible, I doubt they will release a new one just for 360

Only if you have the Harddrive.


NO XBOX GAME WILL WORK ON 360 W/O A HARDDRIVE!!!!!

It's for college students but they're adding high schools to it now.

Yup, so everyone make sure to get the deal with the hard drive, otherwise you will be shelling out more money to get one later.

You need to be invited by someone who's already registered at your school.

I get my 360 tommorrow, or to be exact 12:01 AM on Tuesday.


I had problems with my Xbox when I bought it on release day so I'm probably just going to play the 360 for a couple of weeks and then "flip it" for a nice little profit right before Christmas. I'll just wait for a few batches to come out so hopefully all the bugs that hit my first system won't be in the 360 I plan to keep.

If you want one any time soon you had better try VERY hard to procure one NOW. The 360's are going to be on short supply. The first shipment will go fast and the subsequent shipments are going to be few and far between from what we've been told. They're so short on them we were only awarded 4!!

the XBOX 360 doesn't cost $600 bucks....the things he rambled about for an hour are optional....to say it cost $600 can be misleading to some. It makes it sound as if you MUST have them or it won't work. Also, not all of the 360's are sold out. At Rhino we weren't even allowed to pre-book. We're going to have people camping outside of our store to get in.

I preordered mine way back in April from Gamestop, and I still have to wait until the second shipment or later because I want the premium system and they only got 5 of those in for launch date, and don't know how many or how often they'll be getting them in after that. So now I'm trying to decide if I wanna go and fight the masses at walmart tonight.........Those people at Walmart have no freakin idea what's going on with it either..........I've called 3 times, and get differen't responses with the last one being....."We are selling them 1 minute after midnight, and there's no line that we will be forming, and we won't be giving out tickets" So I guess you just gotta wait around in the store somewhere then run your Butt off to the counter fighting people along the way at midnight????? LoL, IDK, but I guess I'll find out.
