Was she on the news? My mom told me she saw a woman on the news that had just gotten into her driveway with an XBox 360 when a car followed her in and a man held her up with a gun.
In his description, it says when they got back to the car, so I'm assuming it was a different story. It just shows that it's happened more than once and how sick people can be. There was also an EB held up at gunpoint in Virgina a day or two before it was released - they caught those guys though.

I don't think they're playing it, I'm sure it's already sold on eBay for double the price. I know in some places after people bought it, they had security escorts bringing people to their cars.
Hopefully you'll be able to get one by Christmas so your kid's not upset, that really sucks and I would think the experience of that is worse than losing the Xbox itself. How old is he by the way?
I don't have one to sell, or play for that matter and I'm dying to get it, but who knows when they'll be available again. If I were you, I'd keep checking back at places like Target where you got it or similar places like Walmart, who are supposedly getting in random shipments. I have no idea when they'll come in and I don't think the stores do either, but maybe you'll get lucky. A worker at Babbages/GameStop told me that they're backed up with pre-orders until around February, but they maybe will get in a few extra core systems that they'll be able to sell without preorders. You may wanna give them a call also.
