Talkings to some friends on Live last night who live in the states. A couple of them were saying that some shops are taking preorders for the 360 already. They have been told there will be two shipments before Christmas one in November one in December. Shops over there have been given and idea on how many units they will be receiving. It dosnt look promising One guy was saying his local EB is only getting a handful of consoles in November. Can anyone confirm if these stories are true ? Got to say the vibes are bad already for a prechristmas launch over here. Non of the big multiples seem to be saying much. Dixons for example say it will be launched "December 2005" Mmmmm thats not in time to make any significant sales before Christmas. No release date at all on Amazon who are normally quite good.
