Just bought mine at BB online about 10 minutes ago, its amazing how quick they sold out. I got my order confirmation and it will be here by Dec 23rd. There was a period of about 10 minutes you could place your order, they were all gone after that. No need to camp outside a store and no need to pay an extreme price on Ebay, I'm happy. :)


Xbox 360 SKU: 999947300050001

Scheduled for Ground delivery
Estimated Arrival: 12/20-12/23/2005

I got one as well! I had considered camping but it was 20 degrees and snowing!!!! I read (courtesy of this forum!!!) that the website was going to have them. Set up the web page and went to sleep on the couch. I just happened to wake up about 30 minutes ago, refreshed the page and what do you know, IN STOCK!!!! Add to cart baaada boom baaada bing, DONE DEAL, here for Christmas!!!! Yippie for me! :) Had I camped, I would be cold, wet, tired, frustrated and STILL WAITING IN LINE at this point!

How unfortunate. I was busy reading this thread while they were on sale online. I didn't know they were going to even offer them online until after I read that they sold out online. People around here were camped out at 5 p.m. the previous day.

I just got a premium bundle, no extras. Did you order the $399 premium or something else?

If you got an order confirmation and E-mail with the SKU and delivery date, you got one. You would not be able to place an order at all if they were not available when you ordered. They don't take pre-orders. You're safe.

I grabbed one too. I just hope this works out and I didn't screw some credit card info. I deliberately made sure everything matched up with my cc, had the bb website up and the gamermill website ready to call me when they got in stock.

I set my alarm for 5:30 am ct to make sure I had a shot in case they were available at 6am. I actually clicked the bb website (as I was doing every 2 or 3 minutes) and bam had everything set up and ordered the gamer bundle with quake 4, pd0, extra controller, and recharge kit(thought I might sell this).

I was thinking about waiting in line but figured it was pointless and too damn cold out. This was my third attempt and I think I finally got one. :cool:

I think the availablility was so short that those that were watching xbox trackers might have missed out.

I went to my local Best Buy at 8am just to check things out and found that the last guy to get one had showed up at 8pm the night before.

Just went to BB website to check the status of the 2 orders I placed this morning. One order says order being fulfilled ships in 0-1 day. The second order says item is BACKORDERED!!! I wonder if you placed more than one order if they somehow know and only fulfill 1 order and backorder the second? Anyone else here order more than 1 360 (2 separate orders) and have this happen? The BB site states 1 per ORDER but it didn't say you couldn't place more than 1 order for the same item.

Reap, you already got one tho right? You've had one since launch...still think its all that and a bag o' chips, or has the thrill worn off by now?

I'm actually not bothered that I missed out this morning....I was actually more annoyed that I set my alarm only to miss it anyhow...I coulda just slept right through :)

I even told my wife "if I won, I'd have given it away"....I know some people with kids who wanted one for under the xmas tree who already told their kids "This ain't gonna happen this year". Oh well......here's hoping they dont all wind up on ebay.

i had the almost the same thing happen to me, i order 3. 1 for me and 1 for each of my cousins. I just got an email saying that 2 of my orders have been cancelled. that not right. I played by the rules but it seeems that they are changing the rules. im on the phone right now to find out if there is anything i can do. they will say only one per order or something stupid like that. does anyone else know if the website did say that?

Uh, to all you guys who ordered multiples: Please....common sense at work here.

REGARDLESS of your best intentions, every store has had a 1 per person per visit/address restriction on these things, so suddenly being able to "stock up" the weekend before xmas wouldn't make a whole lot of sense would it?

Get your one, enjoy it, and move along. Being limited to 1 per CC Number or Address shouldn't come as a "shock" or "surprise" to anyone here. Before you all start crying FOUL, keep it all in perspective ok?

Yea i know, But it's not fair if you follow the rules, for the most part. I seem that rules goes both ways. I was on the phone for 5 mins with a gentelman who coul care less and just spouted the company line "LIMITED QUANTIES" I was very polite and ask him about the wording on the website and he says there is nothing he could do about it. Oh well i did'nt ask to talk to his boss, I figured it wouldn't do any good. christmas and all. ill just have fun in a day or 2 and my cousins can come over and watch their cool cousin.

Bravo to them for not allowing multiple orders to the same person. One per customer at this time of the year please! Way to go Best Buy!

My life is set at reference level.

FYI from bb website, you did not play by the rules:

Click on console availability

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....cat66900050001

Xbox 360 Availability Information

Orders are processed and shipped as quickly as inventory allows. Due to extremely limited availability and shipping cut-off dates, Best Buy cannot guarantee delivery by 12/24.

Because the Xbox 360 gaming console is available only in limited quantities nationwide, Best Buy is unable to accept backorders. If orders are placed after our inventory has been depleted, we cannot guarantee Xbox 360 shipment.

Limit 1 console per order.

New orders will be accepted as additional inventory becomes available, so come back soon.

Keep in mind, quantities vary by store and at BestBuy.com. Remember to check your local Best Buy store.

YES I PLAYED BY THE RULES:
As your own quote state 1 console per order. I placed 3 orders and got 3 confirmations ,just for that fact. I also figured If this is like any other of million item, that bb sells including hard to get ipods, they should not care who buys them, If they follow the rules. I was not going to sell them on ebay or on the street for double the price, I just thought, it was the right thing to do since, my cousins were looking forward to getting them. limited quanity. I stayed up all night to make sure i didn't miss this opportunity and almost did my taking my dogs out at 7:45 :)

Yeah, I managed to score one myself this morning @ 7:45. Got the email with confirmation and estimated ship date. Just checked my order status now...BACKORDERED. Crap. I just hope it's a mistake, since they supposedly won't backorder the 360.

Odd thing is, I refreshed the page right after I sent my order through...was calling a freind to tell him to jump on it. The premium pack still had the "add to cart" button, so I figured that I had made it in with stock to spare...

I hope they didn't accept more orders than stock...that would make me a sad panda. :(

Well I guess BB does not think so. I think you must have known that it would be a long shot to get 3 systems.

I guess god does not love me at all today. I just checked my third order and it is back ordered. oh well, it was nice while it lasted. Like someone said earlier. Im just not going to play anymore. They will get my money when they get here and thats all there is too it. I've been neglecting my psp and new sony 400 dvd changer anyway so ill buy some games and have fun with that until the 360 become abundant and i can just walk into a store and buy one, whereever that store may be. hopefully somewhere in Nh where there is no sales tax. :P
