Are people seriously this stupid?

Is it really hard to get in some places?

I was in Future Shop yesterday and they had stacks of them. They were giving out special game pack with it as well for free.

Seems to me like they had too many.

That is exactly it. There are plenty of them out there already and peoople who have it think they can retire from selling it on eBay. If you check craigslist, some employees of Circuit City or Best Buy will tip you off on when the shipment is coming in. Besides by March, you can walk into any store and pick up 5 of them if you want.

Huh? :-?

No, I was confused tense wise. He said the 'new' system and 'will sell out' so I thought that either he didn't know it was already released or something else was coming out.

They are pretty well sold out in my area. I know a few people who have either sold, or bought one through Ebay. Just the nature of the world now to try to get a quick score from the parents who will do anything to make their kids happy at Christmas.

Myself, I'm waiting awhile before buying one. B-)
