Best Buy Canada will only have a minimum of 20 unreserved consoles in every store

MINIMUM 20 UNRESERVED CONSOLES AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE PER STORE
So be there early to get yours!

All stores will also open early at 8am with a minimum of 15 additional unreserved consoles for purchase.

That many? I though you have to be lucky to get a store with unreserved consoles...

Both Sony and PS have limited their preorder allotment so that they could have product on the shelves during the holidays shopping season.

I highly doubt that there will be 20… I have a friend that used to work at best buy and many of the systems would be set a side first for works if they wanted them.

so always take 5 to 10 off what ever number they say are setting aside… Special when they have sales on things in their flyers…

So many times we would go in the morning and they would be sold out of items that they had 12 or 10 of … Door crashers would be scooped up by employees…

So just keep that in mind when you try to go pick one up…

Preorder the system if you can…

Forza would be my first game if I was getting this system.

alternatively i would recommenced people wait a few months the reason being is that there are no benefits whatsoever to getting the console on day one also that many of the features that will make up the bulk of your gaming experience like the online services XBL/PSN etc.. will only be seen and tested after launch and for all we know it could all turn out to be a train wreck. not trying to be a doomsayer or anything just saying it is wise to see the platforms in action before hand

No benefits? How about:

Finally getting to upgrade a 7 year old console.

New releases that can only be played on next gen (KZ:SF)

Not having to stress about lack of stock. I did this last gen and it was stressful trying to find the PS3 when I wanted one.

That's actually great. When I got my 360 from best buy, they only had 8 on launch day. Some best buys had less than 5. There were several hundred people lined up, and it was simply pandemonium, as people tried to fight their way to the front of the line.

Only having 20 at each wont do much to stop the pandemonium, but at least 20 people will find the fight worth it.

The best buy employees I spoke to were not allowed to buy consoles until they were able to stock shelves with them.

thats why if your planning to get one off the shelves you have to stay away from the big retailers! I wouldnt dream of sitting outside a bestbuy or gamestop! Circuit City was my spot for the 360 but they closed down since then. I'd try a Target personally or a Toys r Us.

That should be more than enough
