    I ordered one, too, but got the black 'cube, instead. [​IMG]
    I was sorely disappointed in BB's game selection, so I ended up getting nothing for the moment, and will probably pre-order from the local EB or something for those...
    Edit: Argh! THERE they are! Now I have a second order in for "Rogue Leader" and "Wave Race:Blue Storm"

    Once again, my finger is twitching on the left mouse button - but I can't help but think that Best Buy won't be able to deliver this to me for 11/18. Especially since it's not available for store pickup.

    I'm in the same boat as Michel (again). I'm not in a position to queue up on the 18th, and I may not even have much time to play it that weekend.
    And no bundle is *very* important to me. This way, I'll have the Cube + MonkeyBall to play on Thanksgiving with my family without the hassle of queuing or buying games I don't want.

    We could always hope that BB ships them as soon as they arrive, and we get them before the 18th (which is a Sunday, anyhow)... [​IMG]
    What *will* kill me is having "Rogue Leader" a week and a half before I get the console... [​IMG]

    Is BrandonG going to come in and tell us not to hold our breath that we will actually get these? [​IMG]

    Thanks for the e-mail, Mike. It looks like I'm too late though. I'll try Ign's X-Box preorder guide to see if any of those stores have Gamecube consoles available.

    KBToys have bundles on their website right now, if anyone's interested. $400.

    Well, I picked up the console + Rogue Leader. Thanks for the tip guys, I'm glad I won't have to worry about hunting one down now or buying a bundle.
    I have one question. I have no idea how to tell which color I got. The picture was indigo, so I'm assuming that's which one I got...but I didn't even see an option to pick black or indigo. To be honest, I don't care that much, I am just curious.

    There was a seperate page for the Black gamecubes, so I think you've got a purple one... that's what I ordered...

    I'm surprised that indigo sold out before black. No way I'd want a purple cube in my entertainment center.

    Brian,
    I am glad you scored a 'Cube, especially one without the bundle. If you guys don't get yours on the 15th, I will try and report in with as many details as i can, as I will have mine on the 15th!
    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Ok, Brian, thanks for the info. That's fine with me...I have enough damn black (PS2) and grey (NES, Super Nes, and PS1) consoles in my living room...I need a little bit of color. [​IMG]

    Just looked at Kbtoys, and they say they're not taking any preorders at all for GameCube...

    Mike S: I was just passing on what corporate has told me. As of Sunday, Best Buy still didn't know exactly how many units is was going to allocate where. I can tell you that at this moment there is no product allocated to the whse that the website uses. More than likely BB will get a ton of units(just like we did with the PS2) and they will just allocate whatever preorders to the website and thats it. We will most likely not sell units online after release until early next year. I wish they would have told us employees about the whole preorder website stuff, because I would have gotten one myself.
