All the stores near me GONE!!! It's not online either, so I don't think you will see it cheaper! Due to the simply fact that it's becoming scarce.

And, I still need to find one! :(

I went and got my store pick up 360 copy. Of course there is a sticker holding the ticket on it and when she tries remove the sticker half of it is left on the box as it rips in half. I will try to get it off but I am not sure. A little wear from a spider wrap and a small puncture type dent on the top. Decided to walk the floor since it is a BBY I had never been to. For sure a nice area this store sucked hard. Everything was out of place and the used section had numerous $19.99 value titles mixed in which is just a pain in the ass to sift through. To my surprise I find another 360 LE AC III sitting out. This one is on much better shape and I bought it also. Not sure what I will do yet but I have 60 days to decide.

Edit: I also find it funny the box is not sealed with a clear sticker. Both of these boxes are that way so I am assuming that is the case?

I purchased 2 LEs. Neither one had a seal. One was purchased from Amazon & the other was purchased from BBY.

Is this only the case with Xbox 360 or BB versions? PS3 versions have a clear seal on the box.
GS version has it directly on the box( & not slipcover) while Amazon version goes from slipcover to the box.

Neither of mine from BBY had a clear seal on the box or the slipcover to the box. I am not sure if there is anything inside the box that is sealed up though.

Use a hair dryer to heat the stickers adhesive and it should peel right off. Patience with this as you dont want to damage the box.

Mine had a circle seal on the box, not slipcover. It might actually be because my copy was a return copy and they sealed it up. It had a "Best Buy Inspected" sticker on it, so they might have sealed it for me. It had everything, so whatever.

Is the online availability tracking on BestBuy.com usually accurate for limited editions like that? It says all of the stores in the Portland area are out.

I still need to use my spend $100 at Best Buy, get a $50 credit through the Halo AMEX offer so I might pick this up if I can find it.

Yes, I posted about PM at Target failing. They do not price match online anymore. It must be in the physical ad.

If there are only 1 or 2 items in stock, BB's website will show it as unavailable. Your best bet is to either go in the store and check, or call and have the employee put it on hold for you.

If you guys aren't finding them on the website or at your local store try asking customer service if they have them in their warehouse. Like I said in my previous post they were able to locate one and ship it to me.

I asked at my store earlier today. They said they don't have any in the warehouse for either console.

I picked up the one I ordered at Best Buy today. Then thought I'd go over to Target to see if they'd price match it for me. The lady at customer service had to check with a manager but they let me buy one for the same price by showing them my Best Buy receipt :)

Thanks for outing yourself, but you must not have been the guy I saw. The store had 3 ps3 and 1 xbox and the guy bought 3 ps3 to wipe the store out. He was wearing a white coat. I'll snap a pic next time. :lol:

This is pretty frustrating. Are these things supposed to be sealed or not?

I'm pretty sure the box is sealed, but the acetate outer sleeve is not sealed to the box. So the slipcase is loose, but I believe the box is sealed. I am going from memory though.

Yeah it seems that we are getting some who are saying they have sealed boxes and some saying they are not. The 2 360 copies I got were both unsealed. I will most likely open one anyway but the other might stay on a shelf so it would be good to know if there is really a seal otherwise I might just return it.

Could these seals be from the retailer for theft loss?

I am tempted to open them to be sure everything is inside actually.

Got the last 360 copy in OKC... I assume. Couldn't find them at a few best buys in the area, before finally giving up and reserving the last one for store pickup.

The PS3 LE I got wasn't sealed. The gaming rep got it from the back since I didn't want the one on display and wrapped in the spider wire - this one was also unsealed). Also saw a lone 360 on display and, yep, you guessed it - unsealed.
