For those who do have it, how long are the various USB cables that come with the hub for the 360 version? I'm curious to see if I can just place the hub on the floor from my small TV stand.

I broke and went to Wal-Mart. Waited about 40 minutes with a few other guys. Once midnight hit, they sent a guy back to go get them (no one was working electronics) and he came back with the game only versions. He said that that was all he could find in the back.

Went to my next Wal-Mart, figuring I was too late, but I wasn't. This time a guy who worked electronics said that they, too, had not received the bundles, and that I was only the 4th to ask. Grabbed Die Hard and headed home with my tail between my legs.

Someone had said on the RB forum that some BB stores were cancelling their midnight sales because they haven't received them yet, so it makes me wonder if there are some areas that haven't. The BB right next to me was on the midnight list yesterday, but not today.

I was at one of the midnight BB openings, they had 16 for PS3 and about 200 for 360. Some guy was trying to sell the one he bought for PS3 to people on the line for $270.

I was hoping to get it tonight at midnight, but the manager at my local Gamestop decided he would rather take the game home himself and play all night instead of spending an hour and a half taking care of the customers who bothered to spend their money with his store.

Amazon says mine will be shipping out on Nov 26. I don't really care too much, I'm still mid-GHIII, AC, and getting Mass Effect in... plus finals... so I won't be playing too much till mid-Dec.

Picked up a copy on my lunch break at work (god, I love working nights)...Havent played much, but the guitar parts are A LOT easier than Guitar Hero.
Won't get to test the drums out until Thursday, most likely/

Fan, did you actually get one for your PS3? Are you going to sell it or keep it?

So to buy all of the DLC, it'll cost 2280 points. Is it going to be like this every week?

Nobody in line at my BB or CC.

I picked up mine at Target 15 minutes after it opened, but there were lots of people in Target buying it. Will give impressions after I learn the drums and a bit of online rockin'.

Assembling the hardware now. I almost broke the neck trying to get the top piece of the guitar attached. The damn thing just wouldn't click into place.

There are assembly instructions for everything. I've unpacked everything but the drums. I like the little usb hub.

Yeah, good thing I didn't break down last night and try to trek to the only BB in Michigan that was originally on the midnight release list. It isn't there now and the list is much shorter today.
I wonder if any in the Detroit area got them in. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

Just grabbed it at Target 20 min after they opened. No one was there. Only saw 1 of each version, but there wasn't enough space for more.

Picked up my copy last night. Got a good hour worth of play before I went to sleep. The drums kicked my ass. Damn you foot pedal.

I have friends that work at the local Wally World. We got together and went to the store around 10, they only had a few ps3 bundles and the game by itself, but no 360 bundles. Apparently none of the Wal-Marts in the area got their 360 shipments, instead they were accidently shipped to WV. Anyway I got up early this morning, waited in line with about 8 other people and picked up a bundle at Target.
