U could go to gamestop.com but its a bit pricy.

I checked out gamestop... and I thought it was pricey too. I guess I'll have to go shopping this weekend & "price compare". Thanks for all ya'lls info!!! It's helpful.

Piece of Advice,

Be careful when ordering from a store that is taking pre-orders before sept 1st. MS hasn't given permission yet for stores to allow preorders cuz the stores haven't yet received the number of consoles they're getting.

If you go to gamestop and you are 100,001 on the list and they are only given 100,000 boxes, you're out of luck.

hey do all preorders make u get bundle deals or is it for reserving the xbox for u?

08-30-2001, 12:49 PM
I don't think so, I think its just EB and Gamestop.

You may wanna ask before you shell out the $500.

08-30-2001, 02:19 PM
