so my mom was going to get my brother an xbox 360 for christmas, but of course they aren't available at all. so my question is, what's the latest on when we can expect to be able to get one? and i don't mean by waiting outside of best buy at 1 am to get one of 10 vouchers for their latest shipment... basically: are there any stores that are taking preorders for the basic platinum system (ie, not a system + 5 games + other accessories)? and/or when can one expect to be able to hit up a store and buy one with relative ease? i'm not super involved in gaming rumors, etc so any help would be cool. thanks!
