I'm going to go ahead and wait.  $399.00 plux tax for the set up plus $60.00 per game is too much for my blood.  That's $500 just to get going. 

There's a small chance I'll end up with one for Christmas, but I doubt it - so I plan on buying mine around tax time if I get a decent refund.

On paper, it would be nice to get a brand spankin' new system, but I feel like I just got my xbox and I definately haven't gotten board with it yet, so I'm no in a rush either.

Although it would nice to know some if you guys do live. It might help sway me to by a subscription. ;)

I'm not a console gamer, so I'm not even going to try for this.  I'm hoping a friend or two get it so I can check it out though.

I just can't believe they are coming out in such a limited number.

As soon as I can afford it, feel free to come check mine out. It might not be until at least summer though. :-\

Like everyone else, I'm waiting. $400 plus all the $50 accessories/games is way too much for me. Just wait a year when the price drops drastically because of the PS3. Now there's a system worth buying at launch...

I'm going to wait, reason being I don't have a HDTV yet.  I rather get a good TV first than a gaming system. 

Good luck DBK.

My bro has a $250 BB card, so all we have to do is get $150.

I might stop a few places and see if I can score one.  Too much money to be made on eBay not to.

Disturbing this is...

It's not like the XB360 is "limited" or "exclusive", it's just new...  And people are willing to sit out in the cold to get one.  Good god.

I won't even get one till a substantial price decrease...  if ever.  I'm waiting to see some of the particulars that always arise AFTER a system's release.  I waited on my first XB and I like having it but I won't mind waiting to see how the new one pans out.  I also want to see the Revolution and PS3 up close and personal before I commit to the first of the new systems...

Over 1,000 auctions on ebay and the ones that are ending now are ending at a $900-$1,000. Insane.

Well when you sit and play video games all day you don't need a car to go do other stuff so why spend that $1000 wisely? :)
