    My girl works at costco and plans on picking one up before they open. We are going to try and sell it on ebay.

    to make money?

    and someone who really wants it and will keep it will eventually get it when he/she buys it on ebay

    Fuck that, selling shit for more than it's worth is the best thing ever. Maybe I'll buy a bunch and sell one to you for 600 bucks...

    Have fun with your system, be sure to post back when something breaks on the first generation 360, I'll be sure to laugh at you guys.

    I wonder if management will actually let any employees do that

    Seems like a stupid idea to me

    Actually they said said that the employees would have to wait in line as well.

    Oh well, no loss.

    And I'm making a prediction right now that there will be no shortage of 360's this year.

    I'm waiting for games that take better advantage of the multicore architecture.

    And until I get my HD tv (maybe the end of this week)

    I just sat in line for 9 hours at my local Walmart, and actually got a Premium system (they had THIRTY TWO!)

    Amazing console.. Worth the wait, worth the money.

    Need to spruce it up a bit, but its staying vertical.. No overheating issues for me, plz.

    I absolutely love this thing. I've never liked a piece of technology this much.

    fuck all of you. im jealous

    im soo fuckin dissapointed i couldnt get one on launch, may not get one for a couple months because of christmas rush and limited supply.

    that shit makes me soo mad, ms can fork out millions on marketing but cant fullfill supply and demand on launch...

    the local walmart - total of six, 2 premiums, and 4 cores
    24hr walmart - dont know, prolly in the tens
    bestbuy - 40 or so
    compusa - FUCKING 3!!!

    god man, i dont want to resort to ebay, but imma have to.

    That whole replaceable faceplate is such a gimmick. 99% of XBOX 360 owners will never change from the default. I looked around last night trying to find out what the supply status was in my area and was basically told to fuck off at Target. I think a friend of a friend managed to snag one this morning so I might be checking it out later.

    Coscto had 120 of them.


    So what is it that you guys like about this system? Just better graphics?

    For those of you that bought one did you look on ebay to see how much some are selling for? You could easily make 500-1000 dollars.

    that is 4 systems that are about to end in 10 minutes, with the average price of 1,300 an xbox.
