Does anyone know when I can pre-order one of theses babies? I am hoping to do so at Best Buy if possible, I from the US.

Why not ask at Best Buy?

Game stores such as EB games and Gamestop are already taking pre-order's I'm not sure about best buy but if the store takes pre-orders they probably have already started. Call them and if they do they may be out of first shipments. If that's the case two major chains that don't take pre-orders are walmart and Fry's electronics. So if you can't get a pre-order you can always wait infront of one of those stores at midnight to get one. smile.gif

Ebgames is,,,
50$ minimum on hardware
5$ minimum on games

Although when they come out you will likly only be able to buy a package so idk how everything will work with the pre-orders.

Meijer does not take preorders either. They do a midnight drawing (basically everyone who shows up puts their name in a hat and a few lucky ones actually get the thing) to prevent situations where they have gamers in line for hours that day.

I got my Xbox on release day that way, and I plan to do the same for my 360. There's enough places in town that don't preorder so I can just run from one store to the next.

I just returned from the local EB Games and they said they were out of spots on the pre-order. I too pre-order Halo2 from Best Buy, so I am hoping I can get a hold of someone there to see if they are doing the same thing with Xbox 360.

i would preorder from gamestop if you can, i dont trust ebgames, my friend preordered halo2 there and the store where he preorderd it went out of business and he couldnt get his money back they didnt even call him telling they were going out of business.

something wierd about gamestop is if you preorder a games its 5+ the cost of the game, if you preorder a console its just 50+the rest of the cost of the console, so the 50 goes towards the console and not just a preorder

If best Buy won't take pre-orders or is out your best bet is to find a walmart and get there around mid night, wal-mart normaly gets alot of consoles and doesnt take pre-orders and doesn't sell bundles so you won't be stuck buying a game you don't want. If you don't have a wal-mart, fry's will have them since they don't take pre-orders and if you don't have a fry's just call around to any large chain store that has an electronics section and ask them about pre-orders and if they are getting any in. smile.gif

I remember EB started taking pre-orders the day right after the MTV Special, tis when I went and pre-ordered. Just wait at midnight or something at a major store like bestbuy and you should be fine.
