I've never been a person to pre order things, I just don't. Why should I have to pre order something which makes you richer. But anyway I went out earlier this mourning to get a 360, an all the stores had a line but every store had 10 or 15 consoles and that was it. On top of that like 8 were core. No one wants the core. So I can't have one because there wasnt enough supplied. All I know is if 360 makes me wait to long, I won't buy one just out of spite. Sodid anyone else try to buy one but couldnt cause there wasnt enough. As you just read, the stores in my area didnt even come close to being prepared.
