Does it seem like Microsoft has cheaped out on shipping for 360 consoles? Way back in early 2006 when my launch console died, they used UPS 3 day select. Now, they use UPS Ground. But if you track the package, it makes SO many stops. For example, mine went from Laurel, MD to Baltimore, MD, then from Baltimore, MD to Roanoke, VA, to Knoxville, TN, then Memphis, TN, and finally to the repair center in Mesquite, TX. My friend mentioned the same thing to me in the summer when his got repaired. I bought something on eBay from a person in Texas and it was UPS Ground, went from Dallas to Memphis to Laurel, MD.
