Or...try checking back that same Superstore. Now that the no tax weekend is over, they are probably bringing them back out.

As a former employee at superstore I can assure you that the stock level for any electronics there are super low and that chances of getting one are close to none. In fact there is probably 10 or less of all 3 consoles combined at any given store. Employees would often hold or sell it to another employee first so the customers would barely get the chance to purchase one. The low stock level is due to the electronics department being too small relative to the other departments (such as grocery) and other retailers (best buy etc).

A former electronics supervisor told me (when I tried to snag a ps3 on no tax) said that even though consoles aren't scarce products anymore Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo sends the most shipment to large stores like Best Buy/Futureshop then to specialized stores like EB then towards the rest like Superstore/Save Ons or whatever.

It was like that with new games too. Often they wouldn't have games that games on day 1 (probably like a week or two delay) unless it was a sure AAA title like Halo or COD etc.

^ This, especially with games. Both Halo 3 and Black ops when they came out had like 10 people grabbing it the morning after release at Superstore. My avatar sums up not having to deal with stupid lines and simply walking into Superstore before work and buying the game.
