There aren't any yet, to the best of my knowledge. Just be like the rest of us and check frantically every day. Amazon might be your best bet. I've heard that they might have a bundleless package but it's not up yet. beerchug.gif

i don't think some places take pre-orders tho, for example im 99% sure amazon doesn;t, same with best buy. ur best bet would be to show up at best buy early. or heres a trick for u. go into best buy a lot, buying things and such, and be-friend one of the employes (or i guess u could pay him/her). then what u do is ask them to not reserve but "put a side" a 360 and like 2 games (i think u have to buy at least 2 at bestbuy, but u may wanna ask about that part cuz u said u don't want any bundles, but it usually ok cuz u can chose). Thats how i got my psp first day. my dad goes into best-buy every tuesday at like the same time for dvd's/cd's and so he knew the guy. so when my dad asked about reserving one for me he said he could "put 1 aside" as long as he got there like in the first hour of the opening, after that he would put it on the shelves. it worked great. thats how i got mine the first day and how i was 1 of only ~10 ppl who got ridge racer that day at best buy (they had like no stock of that game).

Gamestop or eb more than likely allows yo to pre order the core systems.

yeah, i preordered mine back in may, and in june when i walked in (i think i was picking up conkers) i heard them telling the person in front of me that the first shipment was almost completely spoken for, so by now its probably completely gone. i'd agree with the guy that said find a friend at a target/circuit city/best buy etc.

i pre-ordered chaos theory from gamestop months ahead of time and when i went to get it on launch they apologized for selling it to someone... i wouldnt trust them with a 360 order.

Meh... screw all these pre-order bundles. I'm not even going to try and pre-order now. I'm going to walk into one of a dozen local Wal-Marts at midnight and get one. Seems easy enough (in theory anyway smile.gif)
