Got a call this afternoon from Gamestop that said they received it. I've gone to the store to pick it up and was pretty exited about it. I played a bit with it and was quite pleased with it. I found the games loaded quite fast.

But now I think that it may alreadu be broken... the screen glitched when a was loading a game so I'm struck with a horizontal white line that cross the entire screen that always stay there, even if I change a game, or turn on/off, it come back whan the system reboot...

Try plugging it in the dock, load up menu, power down, release from dock. Power up.

Damn. I've got Prime and ordered in early October. No status update at all from Amazon.

If you stuck with Prime's 2 day shipping, it will probably ship tomorrow for arrival on Thursday. I think Amazon shipped all the next day orders today for Tuesday arrival.

I think it's a nice gesture to include an hdmi cable. Was that previously known?

Not mine! I ordered 1-day shipping.

The white line seems to be common with faulty lcds, loose cable (ribbon). If it displays fine via the docking station, it's likely your panel. If you have the guts to open it up and unplug/ replug the cable to the LCD, that may work.

I hope we don't see anymore of this shit. I stopped buying new systems day 1 after my launch ps2, Xbox, and Wii all broke.

Bummer on the white-line issue. I hope it's a one-off. I wouldn't open it up, even if it is an easy fix. This is a day-one issue. Just swap it for another. I know it's a pain in the ass, especially with how long you've been waiting to get it, but don't give them any reason not to exchange it for you. Gamestop should sort you out.

Hell, if they hassle you, just return it outright and order another from Amazon. Amazon has taken things back when I've had a problem and, shipped out the replacement before I even mailed the damaged goods back to them. :) I only buy phones from Amazon because so many I've gotten over the years have had dust under their screens or other weird issues (especially old Nokias). Amazon would swap them until I was content and never complained. Anyway, you'll get it sorted out, but don't go opening it up and damaging it worse so you can't return it.

Since the warranty is still in effect, it's probably best not to void it.

Receiving mine tomorrow. Can't wait.

Mine will be here today also. I had to call in sick to take care of my sick wife today. Hopefully she will be so grateful that I'll be able to play with the X for a bit...

Most likely she'll see through my scheme and make me wait...

I'm hopeful that we don't start seeing a lot of these faulty screen reports.

Not true. This system does not have a street date... The manager at the store I go to said he will call me when it comes in. They are still going through today's shipment but he doesn't think they have it.

So if you go to Gamestop's website, or if you did, it would tell you "December 18, 2012." That's the street date. What Gamestop does when you order it for in store delivery is they ship it so it is there on the street date, thus you should have yours today. Since this isn't going to be stocked in the store, this is how it will end up working out.

I ordered one from Amazon.com and one from Best Buy on the same day.

Amazon shipped it this morning
Best Buy... No word yet

I also ordered 2 sticks from TRU.. No word or CC charge yet

Check your TRU order. You will likely find it has been canceled. My order for one stick was canceled. Twice.

I walked into my local Gamestop a few minutes ago and they said they haven't received them yet, but they get a FedEx delivery tomorrow morning at 11am. Hopefully they get it in tomorrow so I can pick it up, kind of disappointed that they didn't already have them on hand ready for tomorrow. But at any rate I should have it sometimes this week :)

They only get them in stock early if it's actually going to be available for normal sale through the store. They don't get them if it's only available for pick up as a convenience to it's customers.

Gamestop just emailed me my order confirmation and tracking. My system and extra stick are both out for delivery right now! Due by 3pm today. Woot!
