    I ordered mine on the 21st, having originally ordered through play. I figured that I didn't want my x360 delivered in an oversized jiffy bag :D

    And for £1.62 amazon deliver the x360 first class.

    I was just before that, I think.

    I ordered literally after a refresh and they were taking orders.

    They had about 5 games up for pre-order a week or so ago ... priced at £29.99 ... soon disappeared off the site though.

    Managed to pre-order Perfect Dark Zero and Quake IV , but should have also ordered Kameo and Call of Duty too ... by the time I decided I wanted them they had gone.

    Oh well long time to go yet ... who knows what might happen :)

    Me and a mate were going to order from Amazon, but their 360 pre-order page now has this text:

    Is this their way of saying "we've run out"? :confused:

    It's their way of saying 'we don't know how many we're getting.'

    I pre-ordered the 5 games they had on Amazon on the 10th August, probaley wont want them all but at £29.99 each I can trade them in against a game I do want :)

    As for the console, I pre-ordered on the 17th August at 20:52 but have pre-ordered with Game too, will decide closer to the day which I will go with.

    No reason to assume I wont get them, after all some people who ordered those mispriced Angel and Indiana Jones DVDs got their orders while others had their orders cancelled and I know some people who ordered the 360 games have already had their pre-orderes cancelled but mine is still untouched, will just have to wait and see.

    I ordered mine on the 22nd August. I guess no retailers know how many that they will be getting at the moment but hopefully they will be able to meet most of their orders.

    I guess we'll get one when we get one though :smashin: .

    I am going to buy one from the shops on release day if I don't get mine in the morning. I figure I could at least break even anyway, if not wait 3 weeks and sell it for a profit on ebay.

    Got my reply from Amazon 17/08/2005 21:01 for the deluxe pack. My only thing with Amazon is "Am I going to get this on the release day?"

    I also went into Game this Saturday (27th) and have pre-ordered with them. The guy behind the till was adamant that I would get it on the release date. He said that they had a quota and this was being checked by Head Office on a regular basis (not sure if I believe this :rolleyes: ) and that they would inform people if the release date was no longer possible.

    This does leave me with the dilema of which one do I cancel and when? :confused:

    I have an XBox 360 pre-ordered with 3 different companies at the moment and I am going to wait until they know for sure how many they are getting and the first that emails me to say you will get it on release day gets the order.

    Ordered 19th August at 01:41 a.m from Amazon. Yet to pre-order games (and a controller, recharger pack and VGA lead). Probably get them from Play as they have them for £39.99. Not sure which or if they'll arrive at the same time either!

    Wonder how many people have done something similar to this? ... maybe thats why they are selling out?

    Not having a pop at you Indiana, you are doing the wise thing, I pre-ordered on the first available day, so I'm comfortable that I'm going to get one, but can understand why others who didnt would look at ALL avenues to secure one.

    If the reason they have sold out so quickly is because people have pre-ordered from more than one place it means come launch day there will be more stock available so people who placed orders after the cut off dates will with Game, Gameplay and Amazon will have a better chance of getting one.

    I have ordered from more than one place and will cancel closer to the time once I have the confidence who will get it to me first! I love the web! :devil:
