I finally got around to ordering my xbox 360 game console. Gamestop claims that they will ship the xbox on the official launch date of November 22, 2005. I ended up getting the xbox 360 with the 20GB hard drive, a second wireless controller, and an initial bundle of 5 games.
Perfect Dark Collector's Edition
Project Gotham Racing 3
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Dead or Alive 4
Call of Duty 2
The other game that I may end-up getting on the launch day is Madden NFL 2006.
Now, if i only can find the time to play with the xbox when it arrives...
