walmart still had them today when I looked but it was some $600 set you had to pick all this extra stuff to get... ugh hate package sales like that
edit: just looked now they are down to the regular system bundle for $400
That is pretty damn suspect of them IMO. Last night they no longer had the bundle, it was saying would ship on 12/31, now they have it again but only in bundle? Pretty messed up.

I missed my shot, Dirty Larry emailed me about it... I slept on it... and sure enough deluxe was gone by the time I went to pre-order. I dont need to have it on release day but I just dont want to wait until January either. It appears Amazon hasnt listed any yet, hopefully I can get it on that when it goes live.
Yeah I tried man. It was kind of late when I emailed you though in your defense.

wonder how much stock stores are holding back for holiday sales, or is this pre-order it for the end of the year
probably can sell it for more money and pay off part of your deluxe system
When the XBOX360 came out I ended up with two of them, sold one and sadly it paid for my other one.... that's how in demand they where at the time
When I preordered it it said it would ship on 10/18, when I checked the next day it said 12/31, so really hoping I got the initial 10/18 one.
I also paid for expedited shipping to get it by that Friday as well, the 23rd.
With that said, the uncertainty is why I am definitely holding on to the basic preorder from GameStop for now though, as their site is a bit iffy about the details, but as you can see above the fact my email receipt even says I should have it that week makes me hopeful they will do the right thing.
Another reason to hold on to the basic preorder is as you said, I might be able to sell it for a few extra bucks. I hate to be one of those people, but if their is demand, I can supply is the way I see it.
No doubt not the coolest of things to do, but if I can pay for some of my deluxe, then I shall do so. Nothing wrong with that. Especially if I do not charge an outrageous markup, if the Basics are hard to get as well, I figure I should have no issues getting rid of it.
