Dear Gamestop,

The longer it takes for you to get the Xbox slim in stock, the more time my brain will have to realize I don't need one. Please stop jerking me around and buy more fucking Xboxes. That is all. 
 
Edit: If one more person mentions Best Buy I'm gonna have an aneurysm. Gamestop buys your old Xbox, Best Buy does not. I don't see why you all have such a hard-on for Best Buy anyway, the last time I went there to buy some memory for my PC the guy behind the counter didn't even know what I was talking about. They're just as corporate, just as shady, and just as indifferent to their customers as Gamestop is.

How about you email them instead of putting this on a forum that they will most likely never read? 
Just a suggestion, not trying to be an ass or anything.

@ZeForgotten: This is on Giantbomb, not because I wanted anyone at Gamestop to read it. Duh.
Edited by JustinSane311

Dude, where do you live?  There are 7 Gamestops and 4 best buys within 15 miles from where I live that are packed with new slims.  I didn't think the new 360's were selling that well.

@JustinSane311: Oh yes they are every store within a 100 mile radius of me is sold out. Even best Buys and i live in new york.
Posted by JustinSane311
@TheDoorman:  Seriously don't believe the internet item tracking on the webpage.  I also live in NY and I was at Roosevelt Field yesterday at around 6pm and the three gamespots there were packed with them.  Afterwards I headed over to BB to pick up BFBC2 at around 7pm and they had about 20 units on the shelf.  
 
If you guys need  to pick up a new 360 I suggest heading down to the store and asking.

They are not slims... 
 
They are xbox 3skinnys...

I've been working (at gamestop) everyday since we recieved them (4 days ago), I can't get rid of them.

No its pretty accurate seen as I called 7 gamestops near me based on the store locator and they all said they sold out on friday. And I live in buffalo to be exact not  New york city.

It's not Gamestops fault. In the beginning Microsoft decides who gets what (that's if I understand the Nintendo scenario right).

....dude are you too damn lazy to go to Best Buy or Walmart?  I went and they have boxes full of them.

If all you wanna do is play COD online... then get an xbox... otherwise BUY a PS3!
Edited by DoctorWelch

This is how it goes. First buy an Xbox because it has everything you need except for a few games. Then if you decide you really wanna play the Uncharteds, MGS4, and God of War 3, then buy a PS3, but if you dont really wanna play those games, dont bother with the PS3.

Shit I forgot about Demons Souls. As for Infamous, I hate that game, it's terrible, but thats just me and thats another subject entirely. Also, as for Killzone and Resistance, I would take just Halo or just Gears over both of those games any day, let alone both Halo and Gears. Therefore, I dont count those games.

God damnit, dude. 
It says so right on the first page of the Smell Feature manual. 
"Always have this feature turned on or a child dies every second" 
Sadly, some people haven't turned it on so they're killing babies

You guys are right, I'm a fanboy, even though I own all three consoles, and have played a majority of the good exclusives for them. Even though I love some of the games on the PS3. Even though I use my PS3 as much as my Xbox. That makes a whole lot of sense. Its okay though, you guys can sit there and try to say that I'm a fanboy if that makes you feel better about yourself and your beloved PS3 which you seem to want to defend despite your being "not a fanboy".

The whole "I own every console" argument is the dumbest excuse there is, and you should know that by now.  
You've proven it like 5 times already that you are a Fanboy. 
What's so wrong with just admitting it? Are you not happy to be a fan of Microsoft? 
 
Heck, I own every console released so far and I'm still pretty much a PC fanboy. 
SNES Fanboy second.  
 
 
Heheh "I own all 3 consoles" .. It takes me back to 2002, good times 
We all know there's only 3 consoles

As for Best Buy, they won't give me 200 dollars towards a new 360 for trading in my old one, so it's Gamestop or nothing.

@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).

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.

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...

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?

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.

Posted by Tireyo

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 damnboyadvance

Just go to Best Buy. That's where your business should be, unless you get a joy out of crappy service.
