I was watching Amazon when the first round went up the other day. It sold out in less than 3 minutes. Then a pre-order went up for shipping of Oct 7th... but main page still showed $40+. After about 10 minutes, the pre-order from the "New starting at $19.99) section disappeared and the main page went back to normal price. I snagged one then but it said it wouldn't ship until Oct. 7th. After about an hour, it changed (email sent to me) saying Oct. 3 and a new pre-order went up for Oct 9th. By the time I woke up I had 4 more emails saying the shipping date has changed and I have a "Your order was shipped" email as one of those emails. After watching the site, it looks like they are getting 4 shipments between "the other day" and Oct. 14th. It also looks like when people's cards we're declined or they canceled their orders, I got bumped up and they eventually shipped it the next morning.
