    I rang the call centre at 09:45am on the 24th just after I recieved my Elite.

    They told me it would take up to 2 weeks. So far it hasnt arrived, but hopefully sometime this week!

    I'm still waiting for mine too.

    I know you dont need the cable to recover your gamertag. I read somewhere that you can re-download live arcade games and themes and pics etc....

    If so and if you've got the time couldnt you just redownload the stuff you want?

    Just got off the phone to microsoft. They apologised and said they had recieved more requests than expected fo migration cables.....!!!!

    They said it'd be at least another week before postal orders were sent out.:thumbsdow

    I've sold my 360 to a mate i've kept the HD and told him he could have it when the cable arrived. Looks like he's going to be wating a bit now.

    Is there any other way you can externally save game save data?

    Thats all i want really.

    Microsoft didn't realise so many would be needed!!!!!!!!

    :rotfl:

    Didn't they go through this in the states a couple of months ago, aren't their biggest accounts (GAME etc) all offering good p/ex deals, what did they thinkwas going to happen.

    Rest assured they wont be deducting the number of migration cables issued from the number of consoles sold when announcing their sales figures to give the true figure of Xbox 360's out there!!!!!

    If I get a memory card, will i be able to move over everything, gamertag, gamerscore, all game saves and arcade games etc????

    thanks

    Why would they? :confused:
    Do all premiums replaced by elites end up in the bin?

    Got mine yesterday (20th). Little annoyed tbh because if you read the manual it states that it dosnt guarentee the transfer of save game files and suggests backing them up on a memory card. Guesss what, I dont own a memory card!
    I want to transfer eveything across but dont want to lose any save game data and I dont want to pay £34.99 for a 512mb memory card.

    Has anyone got any ideas as to how to get around this?

    Cheers

    you could always find someone with a memory card.
    as far as i remember,its only a few games that dont allow you to back them up to a memory card,or send them with the kit.
    or,go into gamestation,and ask if you can buy the memory card,but bring it back later,or even take your hard drive in with you,and ask them to do it,for you.
    if you plan on getting rid of the 20gig hard drive after transferring,they might do it for you,if you are trading it in with them.
    always worth a try though.
