    I need help locating an Xbox console system online. I've tried a couple different places like EB Games and Gamestop but was wondering if anybody knew of any other stores with them in stock.

    Let me know ASAP.

    Walmart. Our local store had tons, while no other electronics store within 100 miles of my house had one.

    Seeing as you're within driving distance of both EB and Gamestop, your best bet would be placing a reservation (including deposit) at either to increase your chances of securing one before Christmas Day.

    Sounds like I might have to do that. Is there any reason they are so hard to find this Christmas?

    My speculation is that it's a combination of Halo 2 being such a smash hit, and the ripple effect of the popularity of the slimmer PS2 (sold out everywhere). People want a console of some kind, mainly Xbox or PS2. Since the PS2 is sold out everywhere, the people who originally wanted PS2s are gobbling up Xboxes instead.

    I saw some signs posted in the Xbox aisle this morning at Best Buy regarding an Xbox sale of some sort this Thursday (December 16); no specifics were given. Does anyone have any details?
