Well shoot. Looks like I'm heading to Park Meadows. Thankfully, the Microsoft store will be open 2 hours before the mall itself opens.

Anyone waiting outside Mall of America? What's the line like. I would hate to go out there and not get a copy of anything. I bet MOA in general is nuts.


I tried to respond to you when I was in line but the wifi I was getting sucked. Hope you ended up going cause the line wasn't too bad, MOA wasn't too crazy and they opened early so I got what I came for, plus a Bing T-shirt (well 2 of em) and was done by 11:50.

Just a heads up for the west coasters though, the games are actually $15.99 and the 15% off doesn't stack with the games. Least that's what happened to myself and the guy in front of me. They seemed horribly disorganized with this sale in terms of information.

99% of the people standing in line had no idea what was on sale, I think they just saw a line and got in it. Not kidding, guys behind me were looking up the sale on their phone at like 11:35.

Thanks for the update :). Do you think there is any reason to head out there now or do you think its all gone?

If that's the case, I may just wait until later today to visit them. I can always call to confirm if they have a shit ton left in stock. Just need 1 Halo and 1 Disney Kinect.

EDIT: I think the 6am cuttoff prices only apply to door busters like the laptops and PCs. Can anyone confirm this?

They were busy but a lot of people where there for the computers and such. I would say if you can get there quick, maybe. Halo CEA seemed to be the most well stocked, I almost picked up two copies but decided against it.

Good luck either way.

The biggest downside now is that the line is probably going to be long and slow. The guys working clearly aren't used to ringing people up quickly.

I drove by my nearest Microsoft Store on the way home and there were less than 20 people in line. All I want is Halo Anniversary and I'm guessing since it's Microsoft they'll have a lot of them. But I don't want to wait in line. I'll just take my chances and show up at opening.

Just got back from Oakbrook store. about 50ish people. Getting stuff was easy waiting in line was long!!!! since people were picking up phones. Scored some inexpensive gifts. 2 kinect disneys 1 kinect sports 2, 1 Dance Central2, 1 halo CE, 1 AssassinsCreed Rev. Brought total over a $100 so they gave me 15% off so final total $87.55 + tax = $94.34 So in the end worth the hour wait in line. Can't wait for my kids to try the Disney Game!

Had no problems entering my local Microsoft Store and grabbing what I wanted. The two employees ringing 75 people out, on the other hand, was a problem. I stayed since I'm up at this hour anyway, but I'm wondering if the savings was worth it. 45 minute wait in line.

Budz didn't get his 15% discount to work. Would you know if the employees needed a separate promotion barcode to scan to get it to work? Sounds like the discount isn't automatic.

I got to the century store pretty much right at midnight. the mall was pretty empty. there were maybe 45-50 people inside, not too busy at all. semi bad news

1 copy per title per person, and the % off didn't stack. and they didnt help me with the $125 gc that I was supposed to get for pre-ordering. "they will be sent to you before dec 2"

the sony store was a few stores over and they had all the greatest hit ps3 games at 50% off. the uncharted dual pack was 20 after the 50% off.

This is what we got at the Mission Viejo store.

4GB Kinect Bundle - $200 (gift)
2x Disneyland Adventures - $15 (one a gift and one for us)
Dance Central 2 - $15 (gift)
Assassin's Creed: Revelations - $28 (for us)

Total was about $250 after tax and 15% off discount. We consider the Christmas shopping practically done. The Xbox 360 is going to be a gift for my girlfriend's whole family.

The store wasn't mobbed and there were plenty of copies/units left over of anything you could possibly want. We waited 20 minutes but there was no reason to. Plenty of people had stacks of three Xbox's.

Stopped by the Atlanta store at 6:30 and walked right in found everything I wanted and got out no problem. Hopefully, that's an indicator for you late shopping west coasters. Got:

Batman AC 28
Kinect Sports 1 15
Kinect Sports 2 x 2 15 each
Dance Central 1 15
Dance Central 2 x 2 15 each
Disneyland Adventures 15

Ended up being $143ish. Got extras of KS2 and DC2 for a buddy. Forgot about the 15% off and left receipt in my car so I can't check it out until my break. Stopped by an empty Target and semi busy Best Buy afterwards and got Batman AC with Robin DLC at BB for 30 so I'll probably return Batman and be right at $100. Wonder if they'll make up the 15% then? Really, though, the savings are so good already. Also, the KS2s had some avatar gear downloads or something and the DC2s had 240 points inside as well. Good hunting.

God dammit, I walked by there this morning but thought, "Like hell MS would have good deals." I even took a deal flyer from someone at the door, and they don't even show the good games. I'm such an idiot for not checking.

Still had ample stock of all the Xbox 360 games at the Santa Clara Westfield MS store. Picked up a copy of halo and the Disneyland game. It's funny how there wasn't any sort of sign up stating they were on sale.

For those that have gone, how was the stock for Halo CE? I'm thinking about heading down to the one in U-Village soon.
