I hear you on the 360, I've seen it at several places now and even though I have money to buy one there's just no reason for me to buy one.
As a side note though you know that you can apply for credit and get 10% off the system at Target? However, I think (I haven't verified yet) that if you sign up for their online newsletter you get weekly codes for 10% off and it may be possible to stack those two 10% off deals making it a pretty nice discount.
Still, though it was my intention to get the system bundled up at Costco. Possibly with the little profit I make off selling those DS games I'll be that much closer to one. Have either of you seen the 360 in stock at Costco up there?
Target here is the first place I've seen them in-stock at all. Never seen any at Wal-Mart or Best Buy. Not sure about EB and Gamestop as of late, but last time I talked to one of the guys at EB (maybe a month ago or so), they still hadn't seen more than 2 or 3 very small shipments since the launch.
I already have a Target card, so there goes that idea. I have a feeling with PS3 and Rev coming, we'll see some kind of price drop by MS later this year.
As for Costco, I've never seen them there. I've seen individual games ($59.99 games are $53.99, IIRC), but no systems.
Someone in the TRU thread said that their store (back east, I believe) went to 50-70% off as of today and is closing the 25th also. I think I'll run over there and will report back....
