So XBox 360 launches is just a few more hours. Why is it that I never pre-order anything? I mean I know I want it. MobyGames is not a preview and review, some less generous people may say "hype", site so the Microsoft PR and marketing people are loath to send us a press unit. Plus I would have to send the unit back and I am not so sure I could do that. I was able to get a PSP on launch day so maybe my luck will hold out. Most retailers in Manhattan are not staying open late. A few are open and my initial estimation is that they are going to be completely mobbed. The Times Square Toys-R-Us is right across the street from my office, but you would have to have completely lost your mind to wait in that line. There is a 24 hour Wal-Mart about 45 miles away, but I am not so sure I want to drive all the way out there. I figure I will go have a couple beers and see if any of the other retailers look reasonable. If not I guess I will be waiting for the doors to open at the J and R bright and early in the morning. In other news Xbox 360 support on MobyGames will "launch" right along with the console. For those of you lucky enough to grab a system warm up those scanners. We will be accepting new Xbox 360 game entries in only a few more hours.
