Thats right, Xbox fans, I just pre-ordered the future heavyweight champ of the gaming world, the X Box, at Babbages!!! I'm the FIRST one on the list! How cool is that!! http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/cool.gif
Wow, that's great, but pretty strange. I can't believe they are taking preorders when the system is a year away! How much are they charging you?
Well..take it from me...(I managed a Babbage's for give or take 3 years...) those guys will pre-order anything! But it's cool..they usually place high priority on their pre-orders...I remember having around 150 playstations shipped to my store when it first came out...ouch....

Hey John. Ten dollars only! Be the first on your block to preorder the future of videogaming, the Monster of the Midway, the Heavyweight Champion, the Destroyer of Video Game Worlds! The ONE, the ONLY, THE MIGHTY...X BOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds good, but I'd be worried that by the time Xbox rolls around, the clerks will have forgotten about that one kid who gave 10 dollars in the Fall of '00. Who knows what could happen to that little slip with your phone number on it after a year of throwing it around?

I pre-ordered mine a couple of weeks ago at babbages. They don't have the SKUs yet, but will take your ten dollars.
EB will be doing same, but they are wating for SKUs at this time.
Oh and Software Etc also accepts pre-orders.
