Site update:
"Sorry! We've sold out of our first shipment of Xbox. But have no fear — more are on the way. Please drop by your local Best Buy retail store for further information. "
Score!

Ok, I work for BB and they never told us anything about preorders on the website. As of Sunday, we still didn't have the official # of units that we would get. I wouldn't get my hopes up though, because the website will only get a few hundred, the rest will be allocated to the stores. That's how it went with PS2's last year.
I have tried finding the xbox stuff through the search engine, but get no results. How did you guys find it?

I saw it mentioned on techbargains.com.
I went to the BB site, added a bundle to my cart, then deleted everything else from the bundle.
I received a confirmation email from Best Buy last night congratulating me on my XBox purchase, confirming that it was a pre-order, and stating that I would receive the XBox within 3 business days of the November 15th launch.
Here is what the site says now: "Sorry, we've sold out of our first shipment of Xbox. If you placed a pre-order for this hot new system, please note that this product ships on November 15, and will be delivered 2-3 business days later.
If you were not able to place a pre-order, have no fear — more Xbox hardware is on the way. Please drop by your local Best Buy retail store for further information. "
The preorders were available on the web site for at least 2 hours, so they are definitely allocating more than a few hundred to the web site.
Screw bundles!
