I'm just wondering whether there are many folks out there still waiting for an XBox 360? I ordered one for my son's Christmas present - the premium console with wireless controller etc. Ordered it in Mid-October 2005 and still waiting. All I keep getting are e-mails from Amazon UK saying "...there will be a delay in despatching your order. We anticipate another 1 - 2 weeks". I think I have had 4 of these e-mails now. Any other experiences?
Thanks mike1967 and Jdoki. I'll try our local Game. I don't mind paying a bit extra if I have to buy an enhanced package with a couple of games, extra radio controller etc. but I'll be darned if I am going to buy from one of the suppliers on EBay, who are looking to make 100 - 200 profit on a single console.
I ordered one from Amazon on 19th August 2005 but after being given the runaround and a delivery date of Feb.2006,I finally cancelled the order in Dec and got one from Argos within days of ordering.I wont be buying from Amazon agaon.
As a bit of general advice... if any local store is trying to force you buy an expensive bundle with a load of games and accessories you may want to call up their head office for the company line on this...
The official stance of many companies is that consumers should not be forced to buy silly bundles - but the local stores are not always complying.
Thanks Jdoki I managed to get one online at Game - they had a small quantity available. It came with an extra radio controller but the boy needed one of those anyway. So, everyone is happy (except Amazon, i guess).
