    I was just listening to a internet radio station and they said that the Xbox 360 was sold out (pre-orders) virtually everywhere, they went on to say that Microsoft have already sold over 4,500,000 units. :eek: That's a awful lot for just pre-orders eh? It looks like Microsoft is definitely off to a very good start.

    I wonder if the figures are true.

    so did I!...it's all these idiots who have ordered several that create a false shortage!...it's just not necessary if everybody ordered only what they want (normally one is fine!) we wouldn't have this situation

    I have to agree.

    I had originally ordered mine from Gameplay on about 22/8. I subsequently cancelled because we were thinking of moving house.

    My order is with either Dixons or Currys in the local shopping centre. Cant remember which one since the wife did it for me.

    MEP, I am one of those IDIOTS who ordered more than one !!!!!!!!!!!

    No doubt monkeys like yourself will pay well over the odds for my spare one when I sell it on Ebay.

    Its all about making money, I could not give a S**T about the people who dont get one before Xmas, just as long as I get one.

    I just received this email from Play

    I don't think the email actually says you definitely won't get one, its just not guaranteed and I ordered on the 17 August :eek:

    I know play had it on their site for order for a short time at a speculative price before being taken down some time before the official price was revealed. Perhaps this is when they used up what they now know is going to be their allocation :confused:

    4,500,000 ÷ 4 = amount of cutomers actually wanting one, now is that 1,125,000 people in the UK wanting it or worldwide?

    take of the "yboy" and your name would be perfect :smashin:

    Although it means I probably won't get mine on release date, I don't blame you.

    Don't see how this changes anything really. When i pre-ordered mine via Play it was never, at any time, guaranteed for the day of release.
    I think i'll just hang on in there. Perhaps if a few hundred people cancel their pre-orders then we can all move up the queue a little...:smashin:

    Well for 1 m8 u dont need to buy them all and if you did you can take them back if you could not sale them.

    The place im getting mine from side i can take it back with in 30 day's for a full cash refund.

    So in my case i haved payed for mine in full. The other 2 are for friend and family if thay dont have the money then i will look at selling them on ebay. If ebay is to full of them then i will sale them on here @ cost then if no one wonts them i will just take them back to the shop for a full refund

    So no loss my end

    I think there would be alot of trouble if people who ordered on the day the 360 was listed didnt get their console but people who ordered over a month after did.
    Not trying to dash your hopes or anything but it should be first come first served so if people who ordered on August 17th arent getting one, you dont really have a chance for this side of xmas.
