    Disclaimer: i'm not offering this as fact, so please dont jump all over me. :D

    The Manager of my local Gamestationed asked me if i'd heard anything about the 360 being delayed. i said no, never, it M$ they wont screw it up. he said he thought the same, but both his EA and Ubisoft reps had mentioned it's impending delay.

    Thoughts? Facts if you have them?

    Delay? Doubtful. They're making too big a fuss out of it.

    Shortages? Major. I doubt you'll be able to get one by walking in off the street for 6 months.

    Personally I can't see it. They have only just clarified that Japanese launch will still go ahead as planned, quashing those rumours.

    I think these sort of rumours are standard fair for a big release like the 360 and I wouldn't worry too much. I do think that stock will be limited though and they will be like gold dust until after Christmas.

    my thoughts are the exact opposite Cas. I think there will be more than enough to go round - i cant see M$ doing a "sony" and keeping supplies short.

    As for the rumour i cant see it either, but when two reps from different firms say the same thing on the same day it gets you wondering.

    I can’t see a delay. The xmas release will be absolutely critical to their business model.

    I guess it depends on how popular it is and whether supply meets demand. Perhaps it's come too early for the mass market this christmas and if so they will continue to buy PS2's. I don't think it's a case of keeping supplies short, more that producing enough consoles for a worldwide simultaneous release is a big ask (especially given their timescales).

    Aparently there will be 1.6 million 360s released for the christmas period.

    1million of these will be released in the US on November 5th. 400,000 will be released in Europe on November 25th and 200,000 will be released in Japan (no date as of yet).

    So if there was ever a good reason to use a pre-order, theres one right there. I'll be getting mine from Toys R Us, theyre good at the whole Pre Order process.. managed to get one of the first PS2s from there back in 2000.

    I’ll probably wait for amazon and just pre-order off them. They’ve never let me down in the past.
