Man that is one good looking console, especially in black. Nice contrast to my white Xbox360.

Best Buy doesn't let their employees do that, they have to camp out like everyone else. Hrm...Wonder what would happen if Ps3, Xbox360, and Wii are all released on the day after Thanksgiving. That is gonna be some line......

The BB I work at take down names of the campers and role call every once in awhile to avoid 500 ppl rushing into the store to grab 100 xbox360's.

Well then just wait a couple of months and buy it... In the end, you win


As for $99... Maybe when the PS4 is gonna come out.. if ever.. This is coming out more expensive than the PS2 I believe. I remember $600 CAD for the PS2... (+tax)

so the premium only has an 40gig of hard drive space, a card reader and wifi.

i just go with the cheaper one, il probably get one some time next year as i always do with consoles

I am ashamed to say it, but I work at a gamestop in NH, im a college student, leave me alone haha.

My store is a leading store in the area, we took 16 pre-orders for people to get in line to wait for one on launch, it started at 10 am yesterday, and ended at 10:15 am yesterday, no on has any clue how many consoles we are going to get, the manufacturers of the console systems dont give our company proper information, and the company acts anyways (gamestop/EB are AWFUL to work for BTW).

They are also allowing employees to reserve them, but out of our 16 only 2 were reserved by employees, starting with management and then trickling down to whomever wants them, but I didnt even get a phonecall asking, so its not like all gamestops are filled with jerks, hehe, just be nice to us and welle be nice back.

As for the wii, watch out for preorders the end of this week, early next if you want one.

"My only question for this Christmas on Wii is the price point. Even though it's affordable, at $400 plus whatever you need to buy accessories-wise, I'm guessing you need to spend about $500 to take home a Wii and enjoy it. For this Christmas, I think that price point is still not family entertainment because $500 is a lot to fork out . . . I think the price for what it specifically does as a video games machine is a bit pricey, but I think that their strategy long term we have great respect for."
Interesting, even if we assume the "accessories" bit and give the Wii a price of $500 AUS.....the PS3 release is $1000 AUS.......think before you speak
