    Default I camped 17 hours - I got my XBox 360...

    Yes, that's right, dewds...I got my Premium XBox 360...it was a long ass night. Shockingly, I was the 7th person in line eventhough I showed up 17 hours before the store opened.

    An hour and a half into the long wait, they were sold out...the store only had 16: 8 Premium and 8 Core...I was lucky number 7!

    I just woke up...so, now I'm going to have to check it out...I only own PDZ at this point

    Uh...okay, back on topic, brethren....


    Believe it or not, all 16 consoles were sold out by 6:30pm the day before...the store was a Target Store and they didn't open up until 8:00am the next morning.

    It was like this everywhere...Bill Gates even showed up at the Best Buy in Bellevue, WA, somewhat near where I live... this was 360 mania at it's best... It's the only thing the local news is talking about!

    I even put in an 8 hour day at work today...I'm so freakin' tired that I haven't even played the system yet....and I probably won't until tomorrow... and I know you guys are probably shocked that I am not even playing it...but, atleast I can play it tomorrow...and not in March

    I woke up snug in bed at 8am. Lounged around on XBA for an hour and 40 minutes. Got dressed. Took a 2 minute walk up the street and got there just as they opened the doors. I was the only one there.

    What a wonderful camping trip.

    I used to post here a lot.

    There was a dude in line who was #2...he showed up at 4:00pm yesterday...anyway, apparently he wanted one really bad but sold out to a friend that gave him $250 and money to buy the system if he would camp out all night and buy it for him.

    Just another hardcore story, I think...

    Yea, the Xbox 360 was the only thing on the news today down in Seattle. It was a damn warzone down at Southcenter mall, today. I think I'll wait for all the madness die down before I get a 360.
