pending the xbox 360 release - do u guys think the xbox 360 new game console system will be a HUGE SMASHING Success in the retail market, including massive quantities of shelved stocks xbox 360's till they are declared sold out at all stores and retail locations, and have to be ordered by each individual customer to prepay to reserve a xbox 360 upon next shipment from the factory

- like the way it happened with the release of the playstation 2 - where there were lineups for the playstation 2 console and were sold out on the very first day - people were so desperate for their own playstation 2 - that they went to the US to search for an available system - and i remember from first day they were released

- it was total chaos at the malls and every electronic appliance outlet in Toronto and every where else - Ottawa, Oakville, etc. etc. and that scenario endured for weeks, playstation 2 consoles were madly sought and in hot demand for weeks after until it the consumers finally calmed down, stopped stepping over each other for an available system, when everyone finally managed to find, purchase or order a brand new playstation 2 console system, in the box, for their very own; and didn't need to kill other consumers to get one anymore.

Is it going to be the same exact scenario on the date of release for the xbox 360 on november 22 at all electronics retail outlets in toronto, Ottawa, Oakville, etc etc and all over Canada and the US? Or not?

Post ur opinions? Is it going to be a HUGE SMASHING Success in the market sales or a failure in the market?

I'm not a huge console player, but it doesn't seem to be generating a huge amount of buzz. I've heard people say they're waiting for the new Sony system. For me, it's just a big "eh". Price is also a bit steep, IMO.

I think the new Playstation 3 will create that buzz

hard core gamers have all three consoles, xbox, ps2 and gamecube, in addition to a modded xbox. The regular xbox is for online gaming because MS can scan to see if the hardrive is the correct size and ban the console.
