My local gaming supplier the Kart Klub in Aldershot....(fantastic bunch of lads that have never steered me wrong before) have informed me that there is a hugh shortage of XBOX 360's and the chances of ANYONE getting there's before crimbo are very slim. Even if you have it pre-ordered!! So many people have had to send out letters, emails or make calls to tell people that they can't guarantee a console on DEC 2nd is frankly laughable. Beware especially if you have you 360 in order with an independent supplier as there allocation is going to be somewhere between 0 and 6 units, obviously bigger suppliers will get more. The guys at the Kart Klub were infact so appalled at this they shut the shop early and went to the pub. They don't even know when the next batch after DEC 2nd will be coming to the uk.. January isn't conformed either.... So much for Microsoft learning from their mistakes, they're obviously not as smart as they thought they were. Anyone got Bill Gates's home address????
