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
