XBox 360

Tuesday, November 22, 2005 7:02 AM

This morning I joined the legions of geeks who took part in adding to the trust funds for Ballmer and Gates' children.

I picked up my XBox 360 this morning from Best Buy. It went...well, it wasn't the most organized thing I've ever seen, but I think most of it had to do with the three camera crews from local TV stations that were setting up for the “perfect shot”. Most people who didn't have pre-orders or who didn't line up last night/early this morning were left with two options: core system or none at all (some people who came really late were told flat out that they probably wouldn't get one).

Because I'm proactive and pre-ordered mine back in September I had no worries. I grabbed an extra controller and two of the recharge packs. Project Gotham Racing 3, Call of Duty 2 , and an extended warranty rounded out the purchase. With my original $50 pre order, a $30 dollar gift card (happy birthday to me), and a $10 off coupon, the grand total came to about $930 Canadian (not due until November 2006, thank you very much Best Buy card).

So that's the scoop. Back to the grind though (ugh...lots to do! busy busy busy...)
