I had one reserved at Game since the end of August. But looking at the
latest news at www.oxm.co.uk they reckon that the u.k. may only have
50,000 for launch day.

I saw COD 2 running in Hi Def at the Stuff show in Hammersmith last
weekend and it looked very good indeed. I was amazed at how much High
Def TV is going to be.

I remember completing COD on the pc when that was out and that was amazing! Cant wait! Ordered it seperately to the console, premium pack, so will no doubt end up with a game and nothing to play it on!! lol

Had one on order, but cancelled it!

With the current lineup of games, it looks approximately as interesting as the PSP. Ie, to me. not very interesting at all!

Bought a PSP a while back, love Lumines, but as for the rest.. sigh...
rehashed generic claptrap. It's going on ebay most likely before
Christmas! Oh forgot. Wipeout's a nice game.. but that and Lumines.
Thats it! GTA? Played one.. played em all!

Saw the XB360 US lineup and thought 'here we go again' so cancelled it.
FIFA crap footy update 2006. Tiger Woods <same as last year>
2006, more EA crap and a couple of PC shooters. Oh and Kameo. Talk
about uninspiring!

You can't have nEdless cAshin without EA. What a dull company!!

When the current XBox came out, it had Halo. Made the console worth
buying. Impressive and new games are the stuff of legend these days.
Everyone just seems to want to release a rehash of last year's game
with some stats tweaks.

In saying that. Granted, when Halo3 comes out, THEN I will buy an
XB360, but not before. I guess at least Halo always brings something
new each time, plus decent production values.

Currently I'm playing Halflife 1 Source. Kicks ass!! Oh and Castlevania SOTN (PS1 game).. kicks ass!! :)

Now im beginning to wish I had pre-ordered one all those months ago.

I seem to recall some forum folks here had ordered more than one so if
there is anyone out there who is willing to sell me one of their spare
top spec machines with the 20GB drive et al I may be very interested.

PGR3 is going to rule on this new amazing machine in my humble opinion

I've got my name on the list but didn't pay a deposit. If you
pre-ordered after August 20th then delivery isn't guaranteed. Looks
like most of us will get one next year. The initial line up isn't
amazing like you say but I'll certainly be buying PGR3 and COD2.

Spot the original game!

Heres a question, does anyone still buy the Madden/NBA/Tiger Woods series EVERY year? It must have been going 10yrs now easily.

Still not getting one.... the only game i found good on the previous
Xbox was PGR2, and ive no doubt the new un will be good too - but it
hacks me off when the machine is being pushed as HDTV compatible,
incredibly powerful, and they go for polygon counts over frames per
second. Im sorry, but for any racing game nowadays it must be 60fps,
theres just no excuse but bad programming and priorities if its not.

Chris you always seem to bang on about 60fps is that all that matters
to you about a game? Films only run at 24fps and seem to do just fine.
The game engine in PGR3 runs at 60fps and the in game graphics runs at
a min of 30fps. With the new blurring effects you can't tell at all -
tell me if this trailer is anything other than smooooooth -

I for one think PGR3 is fantastic, they've dedicated a whole core just to the audio!

I preordered a 360 at comet but they didnt have a clue. I will probably
go down to Asda at midnight on Thursday and see if I can hang around
and get one. Knowing my asda though, they'll be like 'xbox what?'. Nah
sorry, come back at 9.

Have you seen the xbox360 consoles being sold on ebay for between $750 and $1000 jeasas!

So can you not just go to a shop like when the xbox came out on the day and see if they have any?

I've ordered two. I should get at least one on the 2nd of december, the other one is likely that I will get on time but no certain.

If I end up receiving both, do you want me to buy it for you and post it? Trouble is I'm in Luxembourg at the mo, but that should only affect postage costs slightly.
