    Try to scoop one on Amazon/Walmart/Target website on release day.

    I wouldn’t have the will power to not open that bad boy up and play.

    I would probably pack it back up once Christmas was close so my son could have it. But I would play it at night when he was sleeping before hand.

    He’s 15 and I’m in my 40’s, so staying up later than him isn’t gonna happen.

    Hoping for Costco to bill me tomorrow. Free 3-5 day shipping so tomorrow would be the window for release day.

    Surely most places will ship in time for release day right?

    Target shows my Xbox as preparing to ship. Right now it says to see it by the 16th. I assume it’ll be closer to middle of this week though.

    I'm going to be pretty unhappy if I get mine from Best Buy a week after release...

    Hopefully I can snatch a Xbox from target at midnight. Wish they would say what time they’ll make them available though.

    I’d try and do the first time setup and download the day one patch before Christmas. It’ll probably be a shitshow on Christmas Day.

    Seeing reports of people with Amazon pre orders getting told they don’t have stock to fulfill their order. Brutal.

    Meijer near me says they will have some tomorrow but with a newborn and work tomorrow think my sleep is probably more important than being in line in time to get one when they open at 6 am

    Not sure what’s up with Wal Mart. They still show they haven’t shipped it, still have not charged my card, meanwhile it’s been sitting in my closet since Friday.

    Anywhere doing midnight eastern time releases online?

    I have baby duty and we switch at midnight so its probably best chance for me to get one because I'll probably be at work or sleeping most other times tomorrow (not waking up in time to be in line at 6 am for meijer)

    Microsoft store had them but I missed it because I was fucking around with newegg that said they had them in stock but when you hit add to cart it said it was a gift item and you needed to add specific bundle items to cart first. But nowhere did it tell you what you needed to bundle. Out of stock now

    Don't see them in stock but gamestop added "launch day bundles" to their website, looks like they will make you buy a $700-800 bundle to get it launch day
