XBox 360 consoleWell my little WMCE project gets stalled without an Xbox 360. I'm not the pre-order type of guy, so I just made bunches of phone calls and here's my intelligence report and plan of action:
  • Already 9 people in line for 18 consoles at the 24 hour Wal-Mart. I'll pass.
  • Local Wal-Mart opens at 7 am and they have 14 consoles.
  • Plan is to wake at 4 am, get some coffee and see how many are braving the cold at Wal-Mart.
  • If too many there, it's over to my local Target. Tickets will be distributed at 6 a.m. and the store opens at 8 a.m. There are 20 consoles.
  • If Target is a bust, the local Toys'R'Us opens at 9 a.m., so I can wait there. As of this afternoon, they didn't receive their shipment yet, so I could be waiting for nothing.
  • Last chance is my local Costco that claims they should have them upon opening at 10 a.m.
Think warm HD thoughts of me as you sleep tonight in your toasty bed. Could I have pre-ordered? Sure, but where's the fun in that?!?
