    Well, Game are not even listing it as a pre-order item. ToysRUs state that their pre-orders for the console are full, and this is on the GameStation site.....

    Customer Notice regarding the availability of the Xbox 360

    Due to unprecedented demand for stock across international markets, regretfully we will not be able to fulfil all of our XBOX 360 pre-orders on the intended release date of 2nd December 2005.

    We are working closely with Microsoft to secure stock on subsequent weeks following release. However, no guarantees can be made that these pre-orders will be fulfilled before Christmas.

    All pre-orders will be fulfilled in date order. Any customer who pre-ordered prior to our original cut off date of 24th September who will not receive stock before Christmas will be contacted directly by Gamestation.

    Any subsequent orders will also be fulfilled in date order.

    Not looking good really!!

    One possibility. Head down to your local games store on 2nd December, wait for someone to collect their console and mug them on the way home!!!!

    Even Amazon are stating this....

    This item will be released on December 2, 2005. You may order it now and we will dispatch it to you when we receive it from our supplier. Please note that release dates are subject to change.
    Due to limited supply from Microsoft, we are unable to guarantee delivery of some Xbox 360 pre-orders for Christmas. Please also note that all pre-orders made on or after November 2nd, 2005 will have expected delivery dates in 2006. We are working with Microsoft to ensure the consoles are delivered as soon as they become available.

    Don't forget that it'll be 110v and so will need a step-up transformer to work in the UK. Also it will be set to play Region 1 DVD's (and games?) - don't know if it's user switchable.

    One alternative is to look on fleabay after 2nd december, you will pay a Premium but I will garantee that there will be consols on there. They are on there already.

    Any possibility is to go to one of the game stores on the 2nd with a fistfull of £20 notes and see if anybody who has placed an order and only given £10-£20 deposit hasn't turned up. Which business will they want, somebody who has the money there and then or somebody that may have placed 3 orders at different shops so might already have one.

    I have heard thet a software issue has pushed the release back to the beginning of January, don`t know if it is true though ?

    It really pi55e5 me off the way big companies delibrately underproduce pre christmas to make things sell, if can design a console as high spec as this surely they can make enough to go around, marketing and sales departments have a lot to answer for !!!

    it's all a ploy..I've been told from a trusted source, that the big shops have been told, to say that there aren't enough boxes to supply demand, when actually there are!
