    Microsoft really know how to build hype. Thats why there the biggest software company in the world. Don't worry you will be able to walk into shops on the 2nd and buy a XBox 360. Im convinced 200K + machines will be available in the UK on day one. It seems like the whole world has pre-ordered one, but thats because we are reading sites thats just about the XBox 360. Im betting 100-120K pre-orders have been taken so far. Im confident of being able to walk into a 24HR Tesco Extra a few hours before, or a PC World the next day, and being able to get one off the shelf. It might be harder to find that component HDTV cable i want though.

    Hi
    I work in retail & know allocations are very slim indeed.
    I doubt very much you will be able to walk in anywhere & buy off the shelf on the 2nd dec. good luck to you, you'll need stacks of it. :thumbsup:

    based on what? previous launches? becuase nobody has ever launched worldwide before - where do you think xbox 360's come from? magic? thin air?

    you obviously have absolutely no concept of how complex a worlwide release is for MS. goodluck with finding one on dec 2nd - you'll need it.

    Well if you buy the Premium Pack, it should be in the box with the 360.

    jesus not another one of these threads. I plead with MODS please close these as soon as you can all it does is create arguments.
