    100 units guaranteed available on the week of the 25th .
    Its the full system not just the core.
    In store only 20quid deposit minimum.

    I'm nipping over now.

    this is a direct lie and the info is false the whole group WILL NOT guarantee stock for launch or xmas you can register your interest for wave 2 late dec early jan however


    the pre-order code has even been removed so stores can not use it

    Hopefully every one of us will get the Xbox360 on the launch day, i don't know why people are so worried even after placing several xbox 360 preorders and IMHO more then 2 preorders per person is like helping creating artificial sellout. I only pre order one from Game store and I am 3rd in a queue of guranteed Xbox360 getters(i made that word up). so guys come on lets not make an artificial Sell out.

    If you pay £20 deposit then it is guranteed but then again nothing is %100 guranteed, my point was when people start preordering 5 and 10 instead of 1 or 2 that will/can complicate thing. In my opinion it won't be sell out orignal Xbox is no2 in consoles if Xbox was no1 all over the world then yeah I could imagine xbox360 would sell out but that is not the case.

    It’s all about demand and supply though. The xbox brand may be a distinct #2 player compared to the Playstation brand, however it has a very loyal (and growing) fanbase. I think supply will be extremely limited and given how many hardcore gamers out there who want this I think that unless MS ramp up production, it’ll be very difficult to source one of these this year!
