    Went to my local Game yesterday to stick my name on a PSP, mentioned the 360, the nice guy behind the counter asked if I had pre ordered as he said they weren't taken any more orders! :eek:

    Glad I got my order in early :clap:

    I managed to order mine at the local dixons yesterday and the sales guy said I'd be guaranteed part of the first batch!

    Was getting a bit worried as I went into Game and found they werent taking any more pre-orders and then kicked myself i hadnt ordered it earlier. Luckily (and I never thought I'd say this) Dixons sorted me out.

    Now lets just see if I get one!

    The wait is agonising!!!

    two preordered 1 in HMV in early july and 1 in game at the end of august. I think I was one of the first to order from HMV, so I dont think Im going to have a problem, at least I hope not.

    Put my preorder in today at my local Dixons, I'm 6th in line so I'm all but guaranteed one on launch day. If that falls through then there's always WHSmiths (got me a DS a week after launch when everywhere was sold out) and Asda to fall back on. 50 player Perfect Dark in 720p here we come! :D

    That's not entirely true...You only get the free mini media remote with the 279.99 package...It's not included with the 209.99 core version.

    Why be there at 10:30? Trust you about what, turning up at a local store with a pre-order? You're guaranteed one.

    There's still no public knowledge of allocations by retailer or even by territory yet but EBGames - for anybody that doesn't know (I'd assume most do though), they're the largest games retailer in the US - has clearly stated on their website and in store that they have sold out their entire allocation of 360s although more may be made available up to Christmas...

    I can almost guarantee that retailers wil have oversold their own allocations of pre-orders. The only guarantee of having a 360 on launch day will be when you have one plugged into your TV.

    So driving home with it in your lap isn't good enough ;)

    I haven't pre-ordered yet. Any suggestion on the best place to try now (local shop, or amazon, play, special reserve)?

    Thanks

    No use having it on your lap if its been broken in transit and you only find out when you plug it into your TV to find out one the cores has been destroyed and it won't boot up :devil:

    I haven't pre-ordered with anyone yet, purely because I am sure most places will have overbooked anyway, i'm waiting for a "hot tip" to come through for me :smashin:

    If you havent pre-ordered already you wont be able to get one from the usual online places like Game and Amazon as they put up notices weeks ago saying they could no longer guarantee pre x-mas delivery.

    I am not worried though as I placed pre-orders with Game, Amazon and Play.com on the 17th August so should definitely get one from at least one of them and will decide closer to launch day which to go with, probaley be Game for the points.

    I put my order in last week! I thought my missus was going to do it for me. Well, she did say "Santa will get you one for Christmas". So when I questioned "Santa" she said she hadn't thought about it! Arrrgh.

    I told Santa that I'm now dealing with it. So I got an order in at Game, though the assistant told me the whole country's pre-order for the 1st batch has run out and that i'll have to wait for the 2nd batch! He didn't know if/when this batch will come in and whether it'll be before Christmas!!

    (Though i'll take this with a pinch of salt because on the 2nd of September I was told by the same guy the same thing about the PSP. :nono: I walked down the high street to Virtual Games (Bracknell) and picked a PSP off the shelf - w00t! etc :smashin: )

    Anyway, I have also put a pre-order for Xbox360 with Play.com (£280 version). Along with an additional controller, Gears Of War and, of course, Burnout: Revenge.

    Roll on December.... :thumbsup:

    You might want to think about pre-ordering some other games or you'll have nothing to play on Dec 2nd! I know Gears of War isn't a launch title, and a date for Burnout:Revenge on the 360 hasn't been announced yet...

    I doubt that most games or accessories will sell out on release, but you can never tell. There's often a sleeper hit that they don't make enough copies of, or they underestimate demand for a cable or whatever, but shortages are usually localised, and they'll soon get stock from other stores. I've not pre-ordered anything but the console, and probably won't bother until they announce a definite release list.

    I'd guess they'd deliberately under supply the first batch, such that us lot fight over them. Then possibly the same for the second batch, having a rush for xmas, so it becomes the must have item. But soon enough, I expect there'll be plenty to go around, to maximise game sales.
