I guess they took the link down. I found out about it through an email and went there immediatly to order mine. Curious tho, why it's not there anymore. Even when I click on the link in my amazon order status, it doesn't have the preorder option anymore. Sorry that it's not there now.

You'll also notice that when you click on the link to look at it. Look at the 'amazon.com sales rank' it is #1 in computer and video games, and #2 in electronics. Last time I looked, it was like 17,000 something. It looks like they opened up for preorder and it went like crazy. So, they had to shut it down once they hit their mark.

So, I was so happy to get my preorder at amazon, when I check my email today and this is what I got;

Greetings from Amazon.com and Toysrus.com.

Due to a system error, we mistakenly listed the Xbox 360 Video Game
System you recently ordered as "available" on our web site.

We're sorry, but this item is not currently available. Therefore, we
have cancelled your order and your credit card has not been charged.

Again, we apologize for any disappointment this has caused.

Thank you for shopping at Amazon.com and Toysrus.com.


Sincerely,

Customer Service Department
Amazon.com


talk about a huge blunder, I wonder how many people are as pissed as I am.

it seems that amazon/toysrus.com have performed a major blunder. Check out this product page for the 360 (Link below). It seems that everyones preorder has been cancelled with no retribution. I wrote a mannered complaint to amazon and they gave me a $5 gift certificate as a compilation. I would've rather just been put on hold for the preorder. What's really going on here???
