Just pre-order one and it'll be yours for $299.

Hopefully Microsoft will be smarter than that, I think Sony lost some user base because of that whole 500,000 deal.

I TRIED to preorder mine but all the places I went to said they stopped because Microsoft told them to, I do call them almost daily and ask whats up, the squeaky wheel get the oil if you know what I mean

I was told that Sony told the stores to stop taking preorders or Sony would stop shipping games consoles..etc to them.

Hehe, Typical of Sony to play like little ganster kids. If I want to be in the mob bussiness I'll just join Sony. I heard the way they threaten the stores is, they send a bunch of Japanese guys in Black suites and they say in real a thick accent, "oy! Bakero! we herd u taking Bill gate's orders! Stop it or we'll take away your insurance, if you now what I mean!" Yeah they are jerks after all, but I don't really care about the politics of it all, I just go for the best games. =]
