That really sucks for those that not only preordered, but waited in the cold for the store to open and were denied a system that they had 'pre ordered' and probably in some cases, were paid off..

I preordered mine from Gamestop here in Chicago and paid it off prior to launch.... We didn't pick it up till around 3pm, and luckily, I got it... Can't imagine how mad I'd be if I didn't...

Good Luck to you guys who got screwed..
