    I as well as most of you have more than one pre order, would just like to know what you all plan on doing with your spare's (assuming you/we get spares that is) ? Send em back or flog em on ebay ?

    I just want to make sure I get a 360 on release day. If my pre-order is delivered I will probably cancel my order with Game. On the other hand if they are fetching good money on ebay I may do that. I am not sure what I will do, but what ever happens I will be gutted if I dont have an xbox 360 on release day. :)

    Have preordered 2 to hopefully make sure I get a release day machine. If I get both then the spare is being bought off me by a mate of mine (at cost price of course!! ;) .

    yeah- I'm more concerned with getting one on release day more than anything else. I've got two pre-orders but dont think the one from Game will come through. If it does then I am going to flog it to either a mate or someone from work rather than on ebay. If a mate wants it then its gonna be at cost- havent really thought about it that much to be honest.

    Me and a friend have got 4 on order between us. If we get more than two on release day they are going on ebay. Hopefully some spoilt little rich kids will tell daddy they just "HAVE TO HAVE ONE". £500 seems a good starting price :rotfl:

    What is the need for having one of these things on release day?, surely it's just falling for marketing hype that accompanies lauches such as this, e.g. Windows 95, Apple iPod, Sony PSP etc, there'll be plenty of stock around, any shortages will be short term artficial ones , the marketing types in big companies make sure of it in order to help their launch programmes etc

    having it on release day.....dunno really...it must be the gamer in me! But should both my pre-orders fail to materialise then there is no way I'll be heading to ebay and paying above the odds for a machine.

    I can’t wait for it to come out but I’m not pre ordering, there will be enough in shops on the day of release.
    I don’t understand people pre ordering 2 or 3. that’s just adding to the marketing hype. See you all on launch day.

    Its nice having a console on its release day.
    Its exciting.
    It feels like stepping into the uknown with only a handful of the faithful by your side before the part-timers destroy the landscape.

    I have one ordered with Game which i ordered on the first day of pre orders so it is pretty much assured. The other i ordered the other day from boots entertainment when you could use their 10% off voucher. Hopefully the Boots one will turn up on launch day and I can canel the Game one. If not I'll keep the one from Game and if the other turns up I will sell it and make a quick profit

    I have pre-ordered...

    Call of Duty 2
    Condemned
    Dead Rising
    Gears of War
    Ghost Recon 3
    Kameo
    Perfect Dark Zero
    Quake 4
    Tony Hawks American Wasteland

    I know alot of them arent launch titles but at £33.99 each I couldnt resist.

    As for extra 360's, I have pre-ordered three, one for me, one for a friend and the other will either be cancelled or sold on at cost price to anyone that wants it.

    A wise man indeed, those are the exact two games I'm going to get on launch. Kameo just looks too good to be true, I can't wait!

    Well only about 4 of them will actually be out for launch and the rest I pre-ordered as the £33.99 prices were too good to miss.

    I heard that Ghost Recon 3 had been put back until February and I havent read anything about Condemned, Dead Rising or Gears of War being launch titles so assumed they would follow in the new year.

    Oh, ok, I'd not heard about GR3. You're probably right thinking about it!

    I saw some footage of PGR3 the other day and the graphics looked amazing but I am not really a racing game kind of person, should I get it?

    I'd say Hell Yeah to that one. I wasnt into the whole racing scene but PGR2 certainly turned me- especially playing on Live. Then came Need For Speed and Forza and my transition to the dark side was complete :devil:

    If you have an xbox I'd look at borrowing someones PGR2 - if you like it then theres your answer on whether or not to get PGR3.

    Is Ghost Recon 3 the one called "Warfighter"? If it is I'll be ****** off.

    I got that, PGR3 and Madden 06 as my three titles I wanted to buy at launch...

    the news about that has gone down well in a weird way. as to many good games out at once will spoil enjoyment of each title. as long as GR:AW isnt out on the same date as gears of war i will be happy :)

    From some previews i've read a number of the options/modes that are in the xbox/ps2 versions of Tiger arent in the 360 version - so you are getting a better looking but cut down version for £50 or you could buy the not as good looking xbox one with all the modes for £30 - Of course knowing Ea the xbox one wont work on a 360.

    They'll probably offer a load of courses via Xbox Live in a few months - keep that revenue model going to fleece the punters.

    Having said that, I'll fall for it! TW is a superb game - can't wait to get it!
