Just a heads up, according to a bunch of posts  on various forums, Costco has a lot of 360's for sale as of yesterday!

I hope you have one near you, if you want one. Unfortunatily, I don't.

My nearest is 1-1/2 hours away.  :?















Yet that's not going to stop me from calling them, or driving down there if the news is good.  Cool

Bah, called my Costco, they sold out in under 2 hours yesterday.  They wouldn't give me exact numbers but said they received more in this shipment than at launch.  My brother is still looking for one and we have all the GTers still in need.  I should have checked yesterday morning.

talk about a dilemma...

i just called my local Costco and they have 2 left...but i don't have a membership.  i'm seriously debating a membership just to pick one up, especially if the bundle reports are true...$479 for a premium system, extra wireless controller, play&charge kit, and PGR3.  seems like a pretty good deal...

don't they have a trial period where you can cancel and get your money back?

I would say do it.  The membership is well worth it.  My wife and I shop at Costco quite a lot and get many a good deal.

So angry!  The CostCo near me had about 30 of them when I went in this morning.  

As soon as I grabbed one the manager approached me and asked to verify my membership.  When I explained that while I didn't have a current membership, I planned on purchasing one at the register, I was told that there was a 24-hour waiting period before I could buy the 360.  WTF?  I decided to look elsewhere.

Yeah, most Costcos got a TON of them in yesterday. Lots more than at launch. Some places had well over 100 units in.

Even if you don't want one for yourself, you can always ebay it off for $1000+, easily making at least twice what you paid for it..

I just checked the costco here in Fountain Valley, CA there were none out on the floor and the guy I asked said they didn't get any.  It seems only some of them are getting the boxes, which explains why some are getting large amounts of them.

i tried...but the person i talked to over the phone apparently wasn't telling the truth.  i got to Costco this morning, looked around a little on my own, then was told they haven't have any 360s in-store in over a week.  i guess i'm back to waiting outside BestBuy next sunday frown

As an update, I called around and it turns out one Costco near by got theirs in and sold out.  Rats.

Anyway, what's the best time to camp out in front of a store next sunday?  Is it only best buy or should I check other places?  Perhaps CompUSA or Frys will get a shipment on the same day?

Here is a thread about all this on TeamXBox.

http://forum.teamxbox.com/showthread.php?t=399517&page=1&pp=15

Lots of people have been able to get one today and yesterday. Many Costcos got 150+ units in!  :shock:

Crap! I was at Costco this morning. What did we buy? Tissue paper for wrapping gifts.  :?  I didn't even think of looking for 360s.

None of the Costco's in northern VA had 360s by noon on Saturday.  I called around and all of them gave me the same response:

"We don't have any in stock, and we won't be getting anymore until February."  

Grrr!

I have no costco's around here.  =(

In other news:  wife informed me today that she was not going to let M$ fuck up her Christmas for me.   So she told me to keep my preorder and try to find one somewhere....but she was going to do her own thing for Christmas unless I tell her quick.
