I will starting my new job at best buy tomorrow and i have a quick question. I have not yet pre-ordered an X-BOX 360 but i want one BAD! i know i know how stupid of me/ but anyway do you guys get first dibs on the x-boxes you get or do you have to see if there is anything left over at the end of the day? cuz i plan on pre-ordering one today for the second shipment but i wont if i can get it when it comes out from BB due to working there. thanks in advance for any responces from BB emplyees or any other retail chain employees.

I'm pretty sure employees get last dibs on stuff like that. But don't quote me on that. I know a lot of people that work at Best Buy but I'm not entirely clear on their store policy. Additionally some of these people have fairly loose moral standards so I doubt I could get a clear answer if I asked.

Best Buy is horrible for limited stuff when it comes to employees, You get the last ones available. THis goes for anything in the store... even TVs. If you have a "cool" store manager he might make a exception but its not very likely.

Should have worked at an EB/Gamestop, they get first dibs always. :)

You really cant put aside something that catches your eye at BestBuy? At EB and Macy's in NY there was no problem putting aside a new item for yourself before it sold out. If your not working in that department I would just ask one of your co-workers that is to put one aside for you.

Yea i would really hope i could i supposed i could just ask tomorrow but i want to get on top of this now since ive watied for so long already. If i cant get it at best buy then i will be waiting in line at wal-mart for one and the funny thing is im only getting it for 2 games at the moment, Gears of War and MADDEN 2006 because it just looks incredible and i cant wait to see it on my new PC/Home Theater setup :)

I prefer camping out at my Wal-Mart for stuff like this... the game stores near me don't have a midnight sale on new stuff most of the time... and I just like camping out and talking to others and getting all hyped up about it for a few hours while waiting in line... did it with the PS2 and the PSP... I was first in line for the PSP ;).

The only problem is that my local walmart closes at 12 so im not sure if they will be selling the 360 at 12 :/

Not surprised to hear that, I think the easiest thing to pre-order Xbox 360 is to give the money to your parent, they will be in the shop and pre-order it for you. :D
