Yup, I think I'll end this chapter of posts by admitting that I have an Xbox 360 coming to me; for the second time. If you recall, I had the last spot at my local Wal-Mart at 4:00 a.m. yesterday morning. I was number 14 and there were 14 consoles available. Thinking I had done enough intelligence on the supply and demand, I foolishly gave up that last spot to get a Premium system. Oh, that was "Premium" alright; a Premium mistake!
I now have an Xbox 360 Core system on it's way from the West Coast and it should arrive on Friday. Don't laugh too hard, I did get an extra game as part of the deal (Madden '06). What's that, are you still laughing? Ah, I don't blame you. I just bid and won the same console I basically had for $299 yesterday. What was the price on eBay you ask? A little more than double retail. The high-def streaming better be worth it!
