    Anyone got one yet. If so where from. I've had 2 on order with DVDBoxOffice for over 2 months now. What dire service. Their site showed them as available and now all I get is a mail about once every 3 weeks saying they still have not been released in Canada.

    Anyone know where else have them.

    Cheers.

    I'm in the same position - waiting for my order with DVDBoxOffice to come through, although I've only been waiting about 6 or 7 weeks!

    However I noticed that dabs are also selling them now, so I've just ordered from there too. They say 1-3 days availability, but we'll see. If it does arrive then I'll be cancelling my import order.

    Cheers,
    Ian.

    Thanks Ian.

    I've ordered a couple too. Don't hold out much hope though as have had a couple of wireless products on order for well over a week with no sign of shipping/delivery despite them also saying 1-3 days availability.

    We'll see :D

    What about Xbox Live?
    The free bird, logic and logitech controllers all appear to have the expansion slots on the reciever unit. Kinda defeat's the object if you want to plug-in your headset as well doesn't it?

    I suppose one extension cable is better than 2:(

    CKA.

    Nah, still waiting. They are still showing 3-4 days availability. Not expecting anything for another few weeks, but I can wait :mad:

    So these cant be used with XBOX live - well they can be used, but not with the communicator - why not, if its wireless with fast data transfer I dont see a problem with voice - has anyone tried it ?

    I think because the headset connects using an expansion port of which there are none on the wireless controller.

    its a real shame that they have not included this, it would have been so cool to have a walk around controller with voice enabled.
    I guess it would be useful to have one kicking around the house for single player games, but for me online is wheres it at - perhaps wireless controller version 2 will have this

    Dabs has just delivered mine with (somewhat ironically) an Xbox Live kit in the same box. Hardly any of my games are live-enabled yet so it shouldn't be too much of a problem in the near future, but I can imagine that going back to being wired just to go online could become annoying as I get more into it.

    Let's hope that I can cancel my DVDBoxOffice order in time before I end up with 4 wireless controllers instead of the 2 that I was after...

    Cheers,
    Ian.

    Just received confirmation fromDabs that mine are due for delivery tomorrow. Luckily I took a chance and cancelled my DVDBoxOffice order last week.

    As I don't have BroadBand yet the lack of voice is not a problem but it probably will be after 21 May (when I get BB :clap: )

    Great news! I'll order mine now.

    I'll be trying an extension cable for the comminicator when mine arrives.

    CKA.
