I got a buddy that works at Best Buy...he says people at his store were waiting for at least 14 hours...although i've heard some people have waited up to 36 hours. He wanted to go tell everyone in line that they only have 50 xbox 360's in the store...$1000 a piece? Try the Xbox - HDTV Bundle...that's only $1,800 (although it includes an 23" LCD)...I'd get it, oh wait, I have a car payment to make...

Why not? Have you seen the specs of the xbox? It's basically that of a 7800GT, 3.2ghz P4. Not a bad price for what it entails, though I don't console game, it's not worth it.

(you have to remember that 1850 price is mostly the 23 inch HDTV LCD. the xbox setup itself is like $500.)

Oreo, it doesn't matter what the specs are. Buying any console at launch is a fool's move. First of all, most of the launch titles aren't even great. Sports games, which are just updated player rosters and improved graphics over the last version. Some shooters that are far better on PC anyway. A mediocre adventure title, etc... All of the decent games will come out later, when there's a greater supply of consoles anyway.
Then, the inflated price for a system that hasn't been field tested yet. When the PS2 launched, it had problems. When the Xbox launched, it had problems. When the GC launched, it had problems. All three systems had slightly different problems, but they all had problems nonetheless.
I wouldn't put too much faith in a newborn console, it's liable to throw up on you.

hahaha. i'm sure some of you have catched the guy who waited 55 hours for the xbox 360 only to smash it with a sledgehammer right outside the best buy in front of the other people waiting to get one ....

*update*

just looked thru xbox-scene some more and apparently a lot of people have had random crashes with all different types of game... doesn't sound good already ...

I bought a ps2 2 weeks before they anounced the drop from $300 to $200. I will never buy another console again until they get used ones at gamespot. Just isn't worth it.

I had to wait in line for a little bit but I got one from best buy on the 22nd.

I love the thing, just like I loved the first XBox. I have to disagree with the bad launch games and there are quite a few games worth buying. A lot worth renting also.

I've seen all these horror stories about peoples xboxs working and thats to be expected that a small percentage would be faulty. It happened with the PS2 and the first XBox also. Mine has worked flawlessly and I've played at least a good 20 hours on it already. Also 4 of my friends purchased them and they havent had any problems either.

XBox live is reworked and is better than ever. Thats one of the main reasons I decided to start playing on consoles. Its as easy as can be to use and theres nothing like just popping in a game cd and getting to play right away. Everythings just so much easier on a console and I can actually rent games now instead of having to buy them to play through the whole thing.

Also they added options to download demos and such from xbox live which IMO is fucking awesome.

Cant wait for some of the killer titles coming out next year, Gears of War, Oblivion, Halo 3, Saints Row/

Ah, I watched the video of the xbox smashing, it was a lot less dramatic than I expected. There were only like 5 people that saw them do it, and then they were all lame and nerdy about smashing the xbox.

"smashmyxbox.com"

"omg it's not even our money"

"we already did this with smashmyipod"

"smashmyxbox.com we raised money to smash it, its not even our moneY"

they just seemed all gay about it, especially throwing it up in the air first. they should have found a store with a lot more people, then went outside while there were people to see then smashed the fuck out of it without getting in people's faces and being gay. seems to me like they were the homos instead of the people that waited and bought it.

Yeah, I know. It just fits with all the horror stories about xbox 360's BSODing out of the box and what not. Cracked me up.

All I know is that I will be in line for a PS3, along with my one day ebay sales. Get my wife and kid to each buy one and we will have a fire sale worth a few thousand bucks.

We live in a small town and they said at teh walmart that over 300 people waited in line for only 14 xbox consoles.

Seriously? What a bunch of fucktards who either, A didn't tell the people in line they only had 14, or B, were told there were only 14 and don't know how to add that the 200 people in front of them are more than whats there.

We had 6 people in our store around Sunday at 7PM. They had a nice smell by the next afternoon, let me tell you.

One 12 year old what smart enough to tell his teachers he was doing a job shadow day so he didn't get the absence counted against him.
