Was wondering if any of yall knew of any xbox 360 pre-order promos. I've been waiting for someone to announce something so I'll know which store to pre-order from.

Yesterday, Gamestop told me that they rarely have promos for consoles, just for games. Has that been your experience as well?

Yea I usually hear promos that features you having to trade in a game system and a couple of games to get money off of the new system. For example: trade in a ps2 system 3 games and add $50 to get a psp.

if anything you'll see bundling deals at the time of release

your only potential pre-order goodie might be a t-shirt or dvd about the upcoming console

My friend in virginia gets 20 percent off if he pre-orders and I believe it was at his local gamestop. Now possitive on the store.

There is a promo it was called get your xbox360 on launch day, not days or weeks later. Most places now won't garuntee a preorder for launch day, you should've preordered earlier within a couple of weeks of the start of preorders.

Two months ago my local Gamestop was offering the 360 preorder. It was $50 and it guaranteed you a Xbox 360 the day it was released. The guy told me that they had so many reserved and now was the chance to guarantee me a 360.

yeah, that's what I was thinking. Just wondering if anyone's heard of a Madden 360 bundle or something like that.

The Gamestop I go to said yesterday they can still guarantee to have one available at launch, but if you guys are saying that's a rarity, I guess I'll go preorder from 'em now.

Thanks guys.

I reserved mine the 2nd day Gamestop opened up to accepting the orders, Most of the bundle deals on launch IMO will be online (how I got my xbox lauch day), or they will be like announced week of release type deal
