There is no chance of a 2005 europe realease. All the Americans will buy so many that our release date will be pushed back.

But aren't they all made in the same factory?

By the way does anybody know how many consoles these factories can churn out a month?

If it was say 100,000 per month, this would mean that the xbox 2 is already in production to create enough for a christmas 05 launch.

Come on chaps Europe wont get Xbox 2 this year. The US will absorb all available manufacturing capacity. I think we can say for sure they havent starting making them yet, news like that would almost certainly of got out.

Has there ever actually been a successful simultanous console launch on this sort of scale ? I think not and I dont think they will start now, the US is the most important market and is always the priority.

It will be cheaper over there anyway and I always take a trip to Florida in November / December :thumbsup:

Apparently Halo 3 is a dead cert for Xbox 2 launch :clap: :clap: :clap:

I have to agree, everything points to a November launch.

The trade press is talking about it as fact, and they are not gamers getting excited, they are just people selling product.

I`m not doubting it will be launched in November just not here. If it is great :thumbsup: What do we reckon the launch price will be £249 - £299 ?

I might still go for the US version as with the first box you will probably still be able to use live. With the current exchange rates could be a big saving.
 
everything is pointing to a chrismas 2005 release. they are showing it at e3 in may. a working playable xbox2 along with ps3 and nintendo's machine.

Harris - its the british trade press that are talking about the EUROPIAN LAUNCH IN NOVEMBER! so therefore a british launch!!

as for price i dont believe that they will sell it at that price. Speaking as someone who bought the xbox on week of launch last time, i remember the balls up they made of the price (lets drop the price by £100 inside six weeks of launch :eek: )

i think that £149 - £199 will be a more realisitic price point. also remember that they will want to get a large installed user base by the time PS3 hits - they wont make the same mistakes again.

What do the trade press know anyway ? They always get this stuff wrong. From past experience I cant see it this year for the UK but if it turns up great.
If it does well in America I cant see them having the stock for a European launch.
