Long Wait for Xbox 360

Gamers stood in line overnight to be among the first to get their hands on the game.

Shoppers at the Best Buy on Apalachee Parkway were led in one by one starting around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Within an hour, the shipment was completely sold out. Gamers said despite the cold weather, it was worth the wait.

"I've waited since probably 8:30 yesterday. I'm not even sure why I waited. I really wasn't intending on getting it. I saw it was a big hype so I thought I'd do it to just be out her and be part of it," said Peter Aiello

Another young man said he was so determined to get his hands on the game that he called in sick.

"I've been here for like 14 hours, so I called into work saying I'm not gonna be into work, saying I'm not gonna be in today because I'm just really tired. I've been waiting here this whole time, you know. I have to stay here, I have to get this game," said Eduardo Freitas.

The price tag on the complete system is anywhere from $400 to $430. This store expects to get new shipments all throughout the holiday season.
