    So i am sure you are like wtf, what does this have to do with anything. the other night a friend and i spent all night freezing our butts off waiting for the xbox 360, and some crazy AP gangster guy came and offered me 700 dollars JUST for my spot in line. so naturally i took the money. then i got paid today, and got paid nearly twice what i was expecting, and my parents paid me back, so i am in about 30 seconds ordering an xt with the kit lens and memory card, along with the battery/vertical grip, and the remote from bhphoto. thank you xbox :D im so glad, after saying iwas going to buy a camera, and things happening, or getting stupid and waisting my money like 3000 times, im FINALLY getting a dslr. all i can say is, ITS ABOUT TIME!! :hail:

    And the 360s are glitching so you are doubly lucky! Enjoy the camera!!!

    Good choice.......a camera is so much more fun than an xbox 360.
    Be creative.......go play. :D

    I can't believe the massive size of the power adapter. I mean, that thing is bigger than a brick! I don't know what's the power rating of the 360, but this perhaps tells something, that Microsoft couldn't source the right part on time and had to settle for something that isn't ready at all.

    you should sell your story to a newspaper. i say sell, they probably won't give you much if anything but you'll get 15minutes...

    Some woman bought a 360 yesterday, and on the way to her car, she was offered $1500 for it. She refused, so he took it from her at gunpoint. I knew video games caused violent behavior! (online sarcasm.)
