Anybody score a pre-order?

I missed the first night of preorders when most retailers jumped the gun since I had a migraine. I tried again the following night when Wal-Mart had a new wave and despite being logged in with my payment / address info all ready to go...I was unable to finish the checkout process because it said it was out of stock. It wasn't even 9:01 when I got the first "out of stock" message, which is amazing. I tried a few more times, but with the same result.

It's annoying, but definitely reminds me of the PS2 launch. I worked at EB at the time and man, EVERYONE wanted one and we would go days / weeks without getting ANY new stock. We had oversold preorders too, so it took a while just get through those (if I remember correctly, Sony cut the shipment at the last minute, but I could be wrong on that.)

Nope, I'm waiting until next year, see how things play out. Even then I'm choosing between a console or a new video card due to budget constraints. Possibly neither depending on how things go.

@Moho - are you doing following anything or subscribing to any feeds to tell you when pre-orders go up?

Have a pre-order with Target and Amazon.
