Holy crap. I was able to get an XBox 360.

So, my friend and I pull into the Best Buy parking lot at around 5:20pm. (They, supposedly, had 194 consoles on hand.)  We have to walk to the back of the line which is, coincidently, at the back of the building. At around 9:00pm or so, some Best Buy staff start passing out bracelets to those in line. The wearer of a bracelet would be guaranteed a unit. I didn't recieve one. A barrier is created to seperate the bracelet-wearers from the losers. I'm in the loser line... and about 30 people deep.

At midnight, people begin to filter into the store --- very slowly. They would grantfive people entrance, and would wait until every one of them had finished their transaction and had left the store before letting a new wave of cusomters in. At 2:00am, I'm about 6 feet away from the door, and my buddy is in front of me. At this point, quantities are VERY limited and the crowd is on edge and in a pre-riot state. The open the door to let in 6 people, and I make sure to shove him forward and block the people behind me. He gets in and I don't. Hey, at least ONE of us got in, right?

I'm at the front of the door and the manager of the store walks up and says, "Two more." The guy beside me had been there long before me, so I let him go in and, of course, take that second slot. I believe that only six more people were let in before every unit was taken. After waiting for 9 hours, I FINALLY got my console...

I can't wait to put it on eBay!.

Most of the 360 consoles are fetching a little over 2x their original cost. Not a bad profit at all.

yea well F you pal! why don't you say WHY you want piss station 3 or revolution, and how they are far superior to 360?

 ;)

What I also find amusing is, I was watching this show last night on MTV where they followed these pro gamers around while they did tournaments and stuff, they were part of the NGL or whatever, and the logo for them is like the baseball logo, xept with a ps controller. Now the amusing part is, none of the tournaments featured a game played on a PS2, it was mostly XBOX, PC or gamecube....
