    online pre-orders to be exact... For those who have a 24hr Walmart, this doesnt apply to you...

    Ummm.... you preorder at walmart.com - so it shouldn't matter what wal-mart is near me?

    EDIT - k, I get it, I think. So, this is not cool for me because I have a midterm tomorrow early, so I have to sleep. Maybe, if I check when I first wake up, there will still be some left. If not, I hope you guys get yours.

    [FONT="Arial"]Aloha!
    Walmart is already sold out of the bundles...which btw comes with 4 games of your choice...they also sold out of the point cards. I was able to order a couple of controllers though...oh well maybe I'll have better luck next time.

    No dude - they haven't finished updating their website - I've been reading the posts of the guys who have stayed up all night for this and they said that unless it sold out in 5 seconds, it didn't sell out. The website has been morphing for the past hour I've been watching it. Rumor is that the site comes back up at 6a CST (walmart hq is in Arkansas). With the site loking the way it is - especially the homepage, I'd say 6a CST is a pretty sure bet. 10 minutes and I'll let you know.

    I t does look like they're only doing the bundle, though.

    Okay, here's the latest juice - walmart.com is based out of california, so a lot of folks are thinking they may start taking preorders at 6a PST (5 minutes from now). I hope its true - I have a midterm in like half an hour.... :/

    UPDATE: some guy called walmart and they said they only have the same information as us...
