it's really bad, the two walmarts in state college only got 2 units after launch!! Both walmarts got 6 a peice at launch, which was half the promised amount...12.

I really hope you don't believe that. It's not like there's only one walmart manager who takes them off the trucks and puts them off the shelf. They know days in advance, with many people, managers too, knowing how many.

I got one on launch day, but with the lackluster reviews I refrained from opening it. I'll sell it for xmas cash and buy one later when they've expanded the game library (maybe).
