    Have you got an xbox? Do you want to be able to make it region free? Waiting for it from www.play.com or www.amazon.co.uk?

    Well, here's an email I received from Datel direct!

    ****************************************************

    Please be advised that all XBox products are indefinitely delayed.
    Please
    contact us again in a months time to see if we have any further news.

    Kind regards

    Should play/amazon still be selling them if this is the case?

    Ahhh well, at least I now know! :mad:

    Amazon want your business.

    They had Halo2 on pre-order a millisecond after it was announced!! :D

    If you search on the forum about XBOX Region X the chances of it coming out are slim.
    It keeps getting delayed & delayed etc...

    I would imagine the e-mail you got has been sent out for the last 6 months! LOL

    Amazon aren't the only ones. Play.com have had this in their "Coming Soon" list since as long as I can remember. They should take it off all sites until it's actually released, because it's incredibly misleading.

    I hate to say it but I would imagine that amazon & play both get fobbed off like us from Datel.

    They should be the honest ones & not say that they have a product near to release when obviously it isn't anywhere near!

    Obviously, if a company keeps adjusting the release date, sales sites will just adjust their own release date. But after a while, I think it should be apparent to anybody that this thing is no closer to coming out now than it was a year ago and should be pulled from all sites until it is actually released. But, this is the kind of thing a thinking rational human has to decide. I'm guessing most of Amazon/Play/etc's release dates are done by an automated service.

    I just pity the people who have pre-ordered them from sites that take the £££ up front.

    All X-Box developments are off until the Nintendo ones are completed. That means forever :p

    Don't know if any of you guys read the codejunkies forums, but even the moderators can't agree. One of them says work hasn't begun yet on Xbox and another says they've had a breakthrough and XBOX A.R. will be released in February.

    I guess if the sites are only taking pre-orders then that isn't illegal. But if they have debited your credit card even before the goods exist then I'm pretty sure that isn't legal.
