    Me being a sceptic I was thinking of a December release, so this news is great! :clap:

    Can’t wait for Nov 4th!

    Nope there is still no confirmed date for release at all and this is the best clue that we've had so far! Not a bad date either as it's 10 days before my birthday so i'll have to speak kindly to SWMBO! :D

    It's great news if it turns out to be true though - that's only around 16 weeks to go! :clap:

    Doubt it'll happen I mean if it really was 16 weeks to go, pre-orders would surely have started by now. Unless the old marketing machine is in full swing and there keeping us all on our toes :rolleyes:

    All MS have said to date it that they plan to release the 360 before Christmas. November has really come about through speculation.

    If it does turn out to be Nov 5th, Sony are gonna be pretty gutted. All those UK buyers ready to shell out £180 for PSPs suddenly having the temptation of waiting just an extra 5 weeks for the Xbox360 :suicide: After all, those who didn't want to import will have already been waiting months

    Gamestation have flyers on their doors also stating 5 Nov release for the 360, now how abot a price so I know how many games I need to sell ;)

    safe to say we are all expecting a november/december release date.

    im more inclined to say nov because that seems to be m$ big month for big stuff(xbox was nov and halo 2 was nov)

    all i care about is the price of the bloody thing!

    That article isnt strickly correct. The hardwares been in production a few weeks aparently.

    The question is with such limited stock before Christmas are any of use actually going to get one ?

    I have a holiday booked in for the states for the end of November.
    I doubt the UK / US will launch on exactly the same dates as suggested but if they do great. It means I have two chances of getting one.

    I simply much have one of these for Christmas :rotfl:

    I personally think that MS will be ready for this release (unlike Sony who always come up short!). I know it's a different product, but they've had experience of big release dates before with their Windows products and i'm sure they will be geared up to take advantage of the pre Christmas sales.

    That said, I will be pre-ordering one as I must have one before Christmas! :smashin:

    Play's price is a complete guess. This thread was going for ages discussing just this, and it's very likely the price will be closer to £200 than 400. Investment banks in the US have done analysis and come up with a retail price of $300 (the manufacturing cost is $375 source: Games TM July 2005), so a UK price will be between £200-£250.

    Doubtfull

    If anything the £ price will match the $ price but it wont be lower.

    we wont see a sub £250 price tag.

    there also was another site that put up a £395 price tag then pulled the price off again at M$ request

    Although i would very much like it to be cheaper and you can bet on PS3 release it will go down in price which is why dosent make sense to lauch too cheap.

    The exchange rate is such nowadays that companies just cannot get away with releasing items at $=£. I'd go with a "If it's $300, then it'll be £250" argument for the 360, and this is where all indications have been so far.
