Some East Texans waited for several hours just to make sure they were able to purchase the new X-Box 360 model.
Enrique Fernandez said he waited since 11:00 p.m. Monday night.
"There were about seven people in front of me," Fernandez said.
They were outside waiting in the cold.
Esmeralda Tamez, a seven-year-old, said, "I'm holding my babysitter's blanket on top of me."
Many say it is well worth the wait. Tammy Willis, a dedicated mother, said she had been waiting since 6:00 a.m. to get an X-Box.
Willis said, "I can get the core one. The premium, those people got those because they were up here since midnight, I wasn't that desperate, it was too cold."
Finally all of their numbers were called out. The premium X-Box sold for $399, the core for $299.
