    I also prefer to preorder online. Both Amazon and BB have release day delivery, and neither requires any deposit whatsoever.

    Fine, so it's paid off. Whatever. And if I change my mind beforehand, I don't have to go get my money back. They never had it in the first place.

    Oh yeah, and... http://www.bestbuy.com/site/microsoft-xbox-elite-wireless-co...

    Look at that. Guess there isn't a shortage at launch after all. Free expedited shipping, too. BB rewards points and all that good stuff to boot.
    First off....why pay it off? Why not, I had the cash on hand at the time I pre ordered, now I walk in and out.

    Second.....click your link again there bud

    I'm not going to quote anyone (want to avoid the page long post)...but here's my take...first of all, can't believe CI didn't find a way to get it from GameFly!! Second, paying things off early is, by no means, something to criticize. Years in advance...absolutely a stupid thing (why let someone else earn interest on your money), but for a lot of people it's easier to drop a 10 or 20 on something every payday, and have it paid off, than to try to have $150 (plus tax) on a given day. How you spend your money is your choice, whether others see it as "smart" or not.

    As for the availability...of course it's "limited". First it's a "premium" item, and if it's sitting on shelves everywhere (due to a large initial shipment) it gives the impression it's not selling (i.e. not wanted, not a good accessory, etc). If it's sold out everywhere, then it looks popular and encourages more people to want it, for no other reason than they can't get one. Another factor is that it's included with the Elite console (also limited), so a chunk of those produced had to be set aside to be included. Finally...I am sure MS has an allotment of them sitting somewhere to trickle out for the Holiday season, maybe even "bundled" on the MS Store.
    Look at me so I can finish!

    Not a halo fan. Will give WWE 2k16 a rent and finish it and AC before Fallout 4.

    Pre-ordering a controller? What a time to be alive.
    Yeah, what a time. When you're made fun of for liking something different than someone else does. Good thing we can't just be happy we're all gamers these days right?

Just because you didn't see a lot in the parking lot doesn't mean there's not a lot playing it.

    Indeed it is an amazing time! However I'd rather be born tomorrow, just imagine what these kids will grow up with technology wise.

    Ahh well I'll just have to settle with my amazing Xbox elite controller.
    Think i'll wait for a few months on a price drop , and see where we lie with reliability issues

    thanks for being an early adopter though.

    CounterInsurgnt he's the humble bragger we never wanted or deserved , thanks again roll
    You are SO welcome! It's nice to be appreciated!
    CS you're such a troll, looks like you're Ho'in hard for those 900 some odd post for that gold badge laugh am i right? What you fail to factor in is returns and cancellations im sure like most but not all novelty products there will still be limited quantities at launch. Btw you might as well got one free for how much hype/ gushing you've on given the damn thing laugh

    So does this means Halo 5 is the next GwG?

    Hey hey hey its CI....I am not affiliated with counter strike! Lol.

    Wait...I get a gold badge for 900 more posts...that's pretty sweet!

    Free would be nice but honestly man with CoD coming out and battlefield this controller is going to ROCK rock

    The customisation APP is fantastic! I turned down the led light brightness to conserve battery usuage and disabled all rumble features.

    A lot of depth in that app, very nicely done by MS.

    As much as I hate to say it you are right about the controller. No one has them and they won't be getting any until next year.
