Second shipment in?

freight We've been hearing from readers all day who've found 360s. Matt in Seattle crossed into Canada to get one of their first shipments after reading our tip. He wrote, "We had a bit of trouble crossing the border because they didnt believe us so they searched us and our car... oh boy... we arrived here [at Best Buy] at 8pm and were the first in line." Bertrand, another reader from the Great Northwest wrote us, "I scored a 360 this morning from the Bellingham, WA Costco. They had dozens in stock. Rumor has it they had more than 140 premium bundles."

Others weren't so lucky. Matt wrote, "A few select suburban Minneapolis Target stores got a shipment today (12/9), but sold out within a couple hours." If you haven't already, you might want to check out local retailers and see if there's any in your area. Anyone else have any luck scoring a second-wave 360?

This is the Waterloo Kitchener area. It was snowing with really bad road conditions but I still managed to show up at bestbuy at 7 am just to find out they started handing out tickets the night before. They claimed people were waiting in line the whole night, not implying they were lying, but it certainly felt fishy. Upon chatting with a couple of unhappy early birds, we all called daily to the store to make sure they are going to sell it this morning but not before hand, apparently not quite the case from my own eyes.

I called up my ebgames here in indianpolis indiana and asked if they had any new info on the 360 second shipment. The guy on the phone said yes 2 came in today but they are gone. The dude informed me that those two were the first that store has gotten since launch. Im number nine on the second shipment list so hopefully i'll have mine soon.

360 here in Canada is not that big a deal. I got a premium on launch by lineing up but even at opening hours there was still core bundles left (and they had very little). Ebay Canada prices for 360 also tend to go for only $100DN more then retail. You Americans who want a 360 should buy on ebay from a Canadian seller. You will save so much money since the situation is not nearly as bad hear.

Circuitcity.com had some premium bundles in yesterday morning for a short time. I got in on it and it shipped the same day - I should have it on Monday! So it looks like they are showing up.

Called the local (Bismarck, ND) GameStop earlier today. The clerk told me that they weren't expecting any units for walk-up sale until February, with pre-orders getting their machines not much sooner.

Funny that the store manager the other day told me that they would most likely be trickling in one or two at a time starting shortly. And Major Nelson has said more than once that there are weekly shipments going out. Such is retail, I suppose.

I live in Gilbert, AZ and actually found a hard drive, but no consoles. But still, the hard drives have been sold out all over town since launch so that leads me to believe there might be 360's in Arizona...

I didn't bother looking yet. I really dont want to have to go to a store at 7am and wait in line to pick up a video game system. If i'm waiting in line, they're giving me a free car or something truly amazing, not me paying 500 bucks to buy a console. I really do want a 360, but i'll wait till I can walk into the local Futureshop and just pick one up with no problems at all.

Fortunately for me my mom works at Costco. I told her that as soon as they received a shipment to call me and let me know. Today she called and said they had about 50 of them left and I had her pick me one up. This was in Danville, CA. I then called San Leandro, CA and they said they had about 40 left. I went down there and when I arrived 20 minutes later they were all sold out! Seems like retailers will get them every friday. The San Leandro people told me only 3 bay area stores got them, so it seems like it's random Costco's.

Choices UK had a second shipment yesterday, they were also selling Premiums over the counter on a first come first served basis, being a primarily rental store they seem to have been overlooked by many as a good source for an X360.

Best Buy in Milpitas, CA said they didn't get any in, but they'll be getting them in on Dec. 18th. She said they'll be opening at 8 AM that day, but I should get there at 4 AM if I want to get one.
