Question reguarding backordering


What I thought was cool is turnning into not cool. Again I signed up at and got enough point for both a ps2 system and an x-box system. After two weeks of being "in-progress" they have now switched to backordered.

Anyone have this type of experience and what to expect or any comments.

sounds like their pyramid has hit the wall so to speak. I don't really know much about their business-model, but you never get anything for nothing in the business world. Remember that and you will do well......

I guess you might be right.

In fact I went out today to our local bestbuy and purchased the PS2 system that I ordered. I figured that if I ever get it I will just go ahead and sell it.

Seems strange that they say they use Best Buy and Amazon as some of there distributors and they are backordered. Yet I can go to the same place and buy one.

Is there any updates for either of your xbox or ps2 orders? I have faith that the company will come through. I set up a thread where people can post when they placed there orders, there status, and the date received here.
