What? Best Buy has actually been rated by various publications as one of the best places to purchase HDTV's and laptops because of selection, price and customer support. Amazon topped it with the selections, naturally, but everywhere else that sells the same thing fell under Best Buy. The lowest rated was Wal-Mart and Staples. They might not know much about gaming systems, but you're tossing out a blanket statement which really isn't true. "
Whoops, I should have specified.  It is true that Best Buy is a great place to get an HDTV, appliance, or laptop (for the most part), but it's an absolutely shit retailer for the smaller things.  Their video games and CDs are overpriced if they're not on sale (though they do have some good sale prices), and I will stand by my statement that they aren't too bright.  Last time I went to a Best Buy, there were four different employees (one of them upper-level and quite clearly not a new hire) that did not know their way around the computer and inventory system.  At least they're better than Circuit City.

I got the last one out of 10 from my Gamestop and they said they wouldn't have more until July 17th. :DDDDDDDDDDDD

I for one enjoy 25$ VGA to DVI adapters.

Best Buy does have a trade in program.  They do in store and online. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Electronics+Promotions/Online-Trade-In/pcmcat133600050011.c?id=pcmcat133600050011     "
Well, I stand corrected then. Their program's a joke anyways, you can only trade in a console (not the accessories) and you only get 25 for it compared to 100 towards a slim at Gamestop.

First of all, its not an excuse, I guess you dont know what the word excuse means. Second of all, I was half kidding in the one post them being the only games. Third of all, just because I think there are a few better exclusives for the 360 and advised the dude to buy a 360 if thats what he wants and not get a PS3 instead, doesnt mean I'm a fanboy. Seeing as you say your a PC fanboy, I guess I understand now why you cant be reasoned with once you get something in your head. "

Be aware that there is a rumor of the new XBOX360 floating about. Rumor has it that the new 360 has overheating issues. Don't know if it's true, but look into it before you buy.

Posted by mordecaix7

For me, it's not a pointless purchase.  I have a launch 360 (surprisingly never had an error with it) that is now out of warranty, no wifi adapter, no hdmi, and a 120 gig hard drive.  The new slim for 100 bucks after trading in all my old console stuff (100 bucks saved up for 360 repairs anyway) is practically stealing for me.

It takes one to know one. 
Again, I don't see what's wrong with being a fanboy, I just find it sad that you have to get so defensive.  
There's is no doubt that I am a PC fanboy since I spend more time using my PC than I do any of my consoles. 
But if you want me to be serious about it I'm more of a fanboy of games.  Games are, to me, more important than the platform I'm playing them on. 
I know, mindblowing right, I'll give you a minute to try to stop with the lame insults and let that one sink in, ok pumpkin?

See, that's exactly what I'm talking about. The longer I have to wait to get one, the more pointless the purchase looks. We'll have to see what tommorow brings...

@Getz: I never tried to make it that, people where just saying buy a PS3 and I said, buy an xbox first if thats what you were planing on, and then buy a PS3 later if you want to play those games. Then I say something half jokingly and all the sudden I'm a fanboy and loving the xbox. This is why GB is awesome, so many assholes, so little intelligence (not you I'm talking about the other people).
