I think I was lucky to get my 360 no problem. I reserved it a week after they began offering pre-orders. I was precisely the 12th person to do so at this store. It was sad.. because even the manager of the store couldn't get a system on launch, because he waited too long to pre-order.

Either way, I can't see the same thing happening this time around. 2 million at launch, and another 2 million shortly after. I am assuming that Sony has learned from Microsofts lessons.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB

Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
