xbox-360.jpgI drove around a little this morning and checked out the xbox 360 launch hype. BJ’s gave out 5 standard units – I congratulated a few leaving with their boxes – probably could have snagged one If I’d been there 30 minutes earlier. Best Buy was more hardcore. The point man had been there since 9PM the night before and watched the 50 some leaders get on the board.
Those waiting organized their own list and kept careful records of who got in line and when. The store didn’t open until 9AM, but at 6AM a Best Buy rep came by and handed out about 50-60 vouchers. Apparently there were about 20 premium and 30 standard units to be had. Some people fell asleep in their cars and missed out. It was cold and windy all night with a light misty rain that chills to the bone! (Contributed by z0inks)
