Okay, so I stopped by Wal-Mart today to pick up the new and recently released Xbox One Elite controller only to wait for 20 minutes and find out that they didn't have any in stock because they were all sold out already. The associate even told me she checked the Wal-Mart website and said that they were sold out on there too. So, I come home and go to the Xbox Store to see if I can purchase it there, and there too, it's sold out.
So, 1 of the biggest retailers around doesn't have it, and neither does the official source... I don't think I've ever personally seen demand quite like this before - I've always just been able to pick up the things I want, and because I waited, I now can't get it (at least without paying exorbitant and gouged price-hikes from those seeking to make a profit online by unsavory means, which I'm not willing to give in to, since it's already expensive enough as is).
So, is anybody in the same (sinking) boat as me? Do you know where it might be available currently at its regular retail price?
I want to feel elite; I want to be elite; but now at least, I just feel sad. :'(
