    I was over in the US last week and paid a visit to a Gamestop store to get an update on the 360 launch. They were taking pre orders and had been told how many consoles the store should be getting.

    The guy I spoke to said they would be receiving stock "Sometime in November" and they had been told the console will retail at $300 - $500 dollars.

    He said they had taken over 200 pre orders and were reaching their limit. Also they are pretty sure they will only be getting one shipment of consoles before Christmas :rolleyes:

    Looks like the US route could be out for those of us thinking of importing.

    Not quite, it gets a US release and then a UK and japanese release 'within a few weeks' so for people who really can't wait importing is still an option

    I was planning on import aws stocks going to be extremely tight. But it dosnt look like there is that much to go round the states either. I`ll still try and pick opne up when Im over there in November though.

    Its also likely to cost quite a bit less in the states both for the games and hardware.
