Hi everyone,

Since the new Jasper is out in the States and a lot of our fellow US Jasper hunters have been able to find them. So to help us all find the newest system in Canada, I've started this thread to post Canada specific Jasper information, lot numbers etc.

To identify a Jasper, as a lot of you know mainly revolves around:
Lot 0843x
Team FDOU
Manufacturing Date of 10-23-08 and upwards.

However this still isn't sufficient since reports have shown up that lower lot numbers were Jaspers and some machines built on that date were Falcons. The best way is to look at the amperage reading through the window in the box, which should say 12.1A if its a Jasper.

The most recent places I've been to are as follows:

Eaton Centre Best Buy:
Arcade: Lot 0836 (FDOU) or lower
Pros: Lot 0836 (FDOU) or lower
Elite: 0824 (FDOU) or lower

Etobicoke Walmart:
Arcade: Sold out
Pros: Lot 0836 or lower
Elite: Couldn't see number in the glass cade

Etobicoke Best Buy:
Arcade: 0836 (FDOU) or lower
Pros: 0835 (FDOU) or lower
Elite: 0825 or lower

If any important info comes up, I'll update the first post. Thanks and good luck hunting!

Same here, latest I've seen are 0836 at my local FS and BBs (Toronto). It's been like that for a couple of weeks now.. We're due for a sudden influx of 084x's some time this month.

The information that I posted is from a couple weeks ago so I'm not sure how accurate it is. I'm also hoping for a large supply of Jaspers to come our way.

new Mega futureshop (largest in canada) is opening this friday at in South Common Edmonton, they have 150 arcade 360 for 3 days going for 150 bucks. Doubt that they will have any jasper in since they probabably got those shipment like a few weeks maybe even a month before they open. Just hope that they can clear up those stocks with the deal and get new jasper models in.

For those who live near downtown, when did you guys check the Best Buy at Eaton Centre? And if so, did you check for the Arcades and Pros? Thanks! I might be going there tonight but not sure yet, depends if I have to work late.

Thanks, I guess its unlikely they will have new stock so soon. I'll probably wait until the beginning of next week to check it out again.

I phoned my local Futureshop today and talked to someone who seemed to know what he was talking about, but then I found out that he actually didn't. He told me that Jasper wouldn't be out for another two years. Anyways, I asked what their highest lot number was and all he could tell me was that "It's the one that uses the highest power". So I guess this means that it's not Jasper.

Yeh that guy's probably thinking of the next generation of consoles. I've had similar experience in EBGames where they keep telling me that the chips that they have now are the newest revision (falcon) so I guess a lot of employees aren't really sure what they're talking about.
