Yeah they seem to be in short supply in the DC area. I got mine at the Rockville, MD Best Buy two days ago.

Hey, the government loves Bill Gates and they're buying up all his systems to play

almost every store has Xboxes, but no cubes on the shelf. I was at wal-mart yesterday, and 3 people bought ps2's within 20 minutes while I was in the electronics department. It looks like there is a high demand for ps2's and cube's, but the xbox's aren't really selling...

The Oval Office would be a perfect place to set-up for a LAN deathmatch party!

I'm liking how some people are saying "We have them here" and don't say where here is.

Target in Los Angeles (on La Cienaga) has about 7 Xboxes if anyone is looking here.

Same deal here in Milwaukee. I have seen several X-boxes, but have not seen a GC since I got mine on day one. Can't even find controllers or memory cards for the GC now.

No Xbox's or GC here in Bloomington IN unless you want an overprice bundle from EB. Damnit, I have my xbox, now I want my gamecube. Damn college towns with kids and too much of their parents money( oh wait that is me).

Yep, they are scarce in the DC area. I was looking for one, but I'm going to wait til tax time to pick one up. By that time there should be no bundles to buy, I'll have a chance to try out the GC and supply should be good. My first full year as a home owner, can't wait to get rid of debt and spend some money on a system I was set on the X Box, but am now undecided again...

I went to Crcuit City in Manchester, NH, they had about 8 XBOXs and no Gamecubes. The guy at the frount said that they had not gooten many GCs at all. He also said that they had gotten a ton of XBOXs, and the XBOXs were selling a lot better. They had gotten very few GCs but they had them for a long time. I was there about a half an hour and about 4 XBOXs were sold. It seems to me like Microsoft has done a better job suppling them.

Although the local EB said that GC sold more, but they had been pusing it all along.

Best Buy in San Antonio has a ton of Xboxes, so anyone here looking for it should try there. They got their shipment in.

Still no Gamecubes to be found.

OK everyone in the DC area, the Toys R Us in Falls Chruch, VA on Route 7 (King Street) has about 15 X-Box's and 10 or so Gamecubes Go to the video game dept. and ask for one. They'll pull it out the back. This was around 4:00 pm on Saturday so call first if it's a long trip for you.

San Antonio seemed to have them everywhere on Thursday and Friday. I went out again on Saturday night and Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Target had completely sold out again. When the stores get a shipment there seems to only be about a two day window to get one before they're gone.

At least the Xbox still has accessories available. I've been looking for a Game Cube Controller for two weeks with no luck. Nintendo needs to send out a new shipment soon.

I was at Best Buy in Bloomington, MN on Saturday. They had about 100 X-boxes all stacked in the video game department in a big ring-shape. Same with PS2 and DC. No Gamecubes though...

I keep trying to bid $200 on one on Ebay, but either it doesn't meet the reserve or I get outbid. Darn, not that I seriously expect to get one for that price. But I ought to be able to since I'm seeing a lot of these things not have a winning bid by the end of the auction.

By the way, saw four this weekend at the local K-Mart.
