Hey, I heard somewhere, on the news I think. That a guy walked into a store sometime during the release of xbox, I forget what state? He walked out with a xbox and some games, and was jumped by 3 people? Who beat him down and stole his xbox. Did anyone else hear about this? Sounds pretty bad.....

lol, dude, it doesn't surprise me...When I was walking out of the door with my black and green beauty, I was watching my back! LOL...seriously! I was!

I mean, I can take care of myself...no problem...but, I didn't want to have to drop it just to pop some punk ass in the chin.

Cool thing, though...I, coincidentally, have a buddy who is a police officer (his first year) and he had his gat packed as he always does...and he stayed up all night in line with me so he could get the XBox, too :D So, anyway...I just thought I would share that

LoL, it's kinda funny, b/c my friend and I went to Best Buy to get one on Nov. 15 around 2:00. He wanted to eat lunch after buying it, so I agreed. When we parked outside of burger king, we were going inside and he said, "Wait, I'm going to hide it." and he opened his trunk and threw his jacket over the Xbox, and threw a bunch of papers around it. He has an SUV, so it has glass in front of the trunk, so anyone could have seen it if they walked by. I think everyone was sort of worried a little bit on the launch day and holiday shopping days, b/c some ppl are just crazy in this world.

That's why I ordered it off ebgames.com, the safest way.

LoL maximus, pop a punk ass in his chin eh? lol... when I got my xbox I had a huge bag with my 3 games in it. But I was walking out of a populated mall :D The bag was heavy and I dropped it about 27 times or maybe 28? on my way out.... I took it home and it was all dented up and the game boxes were smashed =(, it still kind of works sometimes though, it freezes alot and half the time it doesn't even work. But it's nice to know I have one.



btw, that last part is some sensless typing as I am bored :D

LOL, dude...you are too much :D WTF!??!? You dropped it 27 or 28 times? lol...What are you thinking?!?! I cradled mine all the way out the door to my car....I cradled it, rocked it like a baby, tickled the green jewel, held it up and burped it, gave it a back rub, kissed it as I shed a tear, and I even gave out cigars because I had my little baby :D
