Hmm... Great. News leak on the 3rd shipment of the 360 on CNN... and I received reliable info from an employee that at least one of the local Best Buys around me is going to get a shipment in tomorrow. I'm thinking about camping it out tomorrow at another Best Buy that's closer(the one I called is an hour away)... I've learned from my mistake this weekend. If indeed they're going to receive a shipment tomorrow and sell Friday, I'm gonna make god damn sure I'm gettin one and camp out starting tomorrow morning... and keep in mind that this has been leaked on the news... Think this is a good idea? This might even turn out to be a repeat of this last weekend, probably not as bad since the leak was recent, but still... Could be the last chance before the holidays

im gonna try parks first. Also, if you noticed they just opened one up in mansfield that no one really knows about, could be worth it to try there too.

well guys, I'm gonna head off of here a little early(lol, 11:15pm=early) to rest up for tomorrow; I'm still debating on whether or not to stay there as soon as I get there when it opens, or go there a little later near midday and start waiting from there. I'll be waking up at 7:30 or so to look at the replies, and I'm gettin ready and headin off! Good luck to you all pop.gif

i've checked the systems and indeed best buy are going to get more shipments in tomorrow. but from their newsletter, they won't sell them until the next day. so if they received it on wednesday, sell on thurs, receive on thurs, sell on fri etc etc.

looks like my speculations were true about Mansfield Best Buy. I went to the one at the parks at 8 AM and they said they only got 2 and sold them out. I went to the one in Mansfield (the one no one knows about because it opened recently) and they still had 3 left at 8:45. They're sold out now prolly.
