    Also . . .

    By the way, my recent trip to Ebay shows 333 consoles for sale. Many of which are identified as EBGames and Gamestop preorders.

    I've written an email to Nintendo . . . suggesting they exert some clout against the practice of their systems being preordered and sold before they are even purchased. It seems unethical and perphaps . . . illegal.

    I also saw mention of some of the sellers saying they were Gamestop employees . . . saying they had a system for themselves and one more . . .

    I'm going to contact Gamestop and suggest they curb such practices. I don't care if they work at Gamestop . . . it certainly doesn't mean they should have access to the product before others. It shouldn't mean they can sell an extra on EBay for profit. Unethical . . . and surely a blight on Gamestop's reputation.

    If I can't be comforted by having a preorder . . . I'm going to cause some problems :P.

    Don't forget that the US release is the only launch on November 19. There is almost a month between that and the rest of the world launches for them to produce even more consoles.

    I doubt that . . .

    The number of 360 owners that want both systems is very high. I believe we'll see a larger number of Wii's (in comparison to the 360) sold before the end of the year at the latest.

    I don't think the demand for the two systems is anywhere near what you say . . . just my opinion.

    Thanks,

    JD

    You must also consider those lucky 10-20 people per Gamestop that have already pre-ordered. You know those 10-20 hardcores would be camping out the night before the 19th as well. So... we won't have to compete with them at the big box stores.
    That's what she said.
