Just click on the sheet and look up by your store number. Store number can be found by going on Bestbuy.com

64 for the location by me sounds like it would be easy to get one on launch day. Same I don't want one however.


Definitly usefull for those who much have one on tuesday.

sure stores are getting a very lmited number -- seems like an average of 40 per store in my area - lets say 30 stores - thats 1200 units ok so lets subtract 10 stores (gaming) that are sold out due to pre orders - 400 units

so that leaves 800 units close to my zip code - i think there is a good chance of finding one if your realy desperate

i remember when the GBA came out -- all the gameing stores were sold out due to pre orders - i walk in to a circuit city and boom they have many for sale - i have no doubt that if i realy wanted one on launch day id have one.

I'm not seeing anything either, just a bunch of game news reports. Glad to hear UT2K7 is in the works though, I was thinking the series would die or something.

The closest one to me is getting 110, thinking maybe I'll go there instead of Target (they are in the same shopping complex).

EDIT: And thanks for the headups and link :D

I find it hard to believe this system is going to sell out with this relatively high number of available systems. Between Best Buy and the other dozen popular electronic/game stores, there seems to be plenty to go around. Everyone is anxious about EB and Gamestop's allocation, but if big box stores like Best Buy are getting this many, how could one not find a 360 on launch day.

Mmmmmmmm, 54 pro and 18 core systems available right down the block from me. Might have to check out launch day. :)

Wow...we thought we were getting 20 at our store in Phoenix but apparently we're getting 64 total. Maybe they will let me pick one up there on launch day ;D. Yay store 251!

Hmm...from relooking at it, almost all stores in Southern AZ are getting about 60 each. Shouldn't be a problem finding one launch day at all if only BB chains are getting that much.

Ah, page 4.

My state is getting around 125. Closest store to me is getting 74 of them, that's a lot more than I figured for just best buy.

Yeah, I did, too. It's a news article, now on the second or third page back. (Go to "next" at the bottom once or twice.)

Wow, this is a lot more than I thought it would be. I still remember when the Target and Best Buy near my house each got 20 PS2 systems on launch day. The same Best Buy store is getting 4X as many X360s. I still can't believe there are that many people who are going to plunk down $500+ to get a system, spare controller and a game or two. It reminds me of the PSP situation. Great system, but not exactly in the impulse buy price range.

Seems like the same problem as PS2's.

I recall having to get PS2 systems "secrectly" via UPS so as to avoid people finding out we only got a few in.

My nearest store is getting 54 total (40 pro, 14 core).

I've asked almost every store I've gone into, that doesn't take pre-orders, how many they're getting.

Target - 18 of each set
Best Buy - 30 each set. Both Stores.
Wal-Mart - The bitch had no idea what I was talking about. Seriously. So, I dunno. I'd guess no more than 25 each set.
CompUSA - 8 each, both stores.

Its starting to look pretty grim for all us hanging on with baited breath that didn't pre-order one.

The one I reserved will be the 3rd shipment, I've been told. So I may try and get to a Wal-Mart close to midnight on the 21st/22nd and see if I can snag one.

Thats why you hit the stores you didn't mention.

I work on the outskirts of Detroit. I garantee I can stroll into a Kmart down the street after work (2pm) and find a premium system. Seriously, who checks Kmart? I went into the one down the road from me and the kid there said that they were definitely my best bet. The day the PSP launched they sold none, and when Halo 2 launched they still had a case left by 6pm. I have a feeling if i make the stops on the way back from work that day I'll be dandy.

That is, if I don't pick one up at Midnight at Meijer.

I hope :(

Hmm...well, a few arrived on the truck tonight but I didn't open up the boxes and start nosing around since there was 5000 other peices of merchandise being pulled off the truck. The games should be arriving tomorrow via ups. Even though we're getting three times the systems mentioned previously, the managers are still hardcore locking out any employees from buying them.

The day of the launch they want freaking 5 tables set up with a different them to each. The store's really tying in the geek squad, trying to get lots of home installs and BS. Ugh, that company's tactics sicken me sometimes. It's all about making money though, so whatever. After I get off work that day around 2pm, I'll probably hit kmart like the person above me mentioned. Nobody goes in that store anyways.

So what time does Best Buy open?



I wouldn't mind going to a Best Buy that's getting like 100 of them, chances are, there won't be that many people there in the morning. Maybe 89 die hards, but probably not a 100. I need to check the list and see which store has the highest number in my area.



I don't mind waiting in line to snag one, but I'm not going to be waiting hours for one. I would like to try to show up fashionably late, but still being able to snag one. Only thing is, I gotta worry about the damn core system.

I was going to say, KMart is a good place to hit up.

Other places you may want to try:
Sams Club
Cosco
BJ's
Strawberries
Toys R Us
K Bee Toys
Circuit City

Does Office Depo sell consoles and console games? I've seen PC games in there....

Good call on costco and sams club, shouldn't be difficult to get one there. Most people I've talked to hate buying any system there because there always bundled. Best Buy's going to bundle the living !@#$ out of these systems anyways, so who cares. The BB I work at has put out a gameplan notice to presell the bundles to the line before the store opens.

Actually, Best Buy is where I bought my PSP at. It was only a few days after the launch and every other place I checked (Wal-Mart, EB, GameStop, etc.) was sold out of them. But when I walked into my Warwick RI BB, they had a table right at front with all of the systems, games, and accesories, and two people there, showing off the unit, letting you play it, answering questions, etc.

They were good sellers, also. Not pushy, they knew what they were talking about, allowed you to spend time with the system and any game you wanted to try with for a few minutes, and gave cupons to take discounts off it at the register. Plus the extended warrenty from them, which I was THRILLED to have a few months later when I accidently broke the on/off switch on my unit somehow.

I imagined BB would be doing a similar thing with the XBox 360. If they don't push too hard, and allow people to play the system and games, they should go like hotcakes. :)

I just checked the stores in Sac Town. The one closest to me is getting 62 total. 48 premiums and 14 cores. The next closest store is getting 54. 40 premiums and 14 cores. And then one other one is getting 48. 36 premiums and 12 cores.


Bottom line, I'm not going to Best Buy, cause there is easily going to be enough people waiting in line way too early for me.


Man, this one Best Buy was getting like 260 360's, I was totally amazed by that. I wonder what Best Buy that was.

The closest Best Buy to me which is about 5 miles away is getting 110. That might be enough. If not, There is one a few minutes from my work that is getting in 100. And if that is not enough, there is one about 30 minutes away that is getting 234.
I think my chances are pretty good ;)

Wow, I just discovered that there are two bestbuys in the appleton area. Better news for me then.
