    X360 -> November 11th? *LINK FIXED*

    Was looking through amazon and found this

    Never heard of that game and the console itself is still listed for the 28th November

    But if the game publisher told Amazon a release date of the 11th November, that could be the actual console release date.

    But, it could all just be a typo

    What’s the best thing you can tell everyone about a new videogames machine? That’s right! That it's not for sale anymore and will be really rare and exciting. Knowing this all too well, GAME Retail in the UK has announced that it can no longer accept any orders for Xbox 360 due to phenomenal demand.

    Now of course, we’re not saying that this is bogus, but given production lines haven't even begun to roll over in China, and yield rates have yet to be established, it would seem an odd time to calculate expected stocking levels of the new machine.
    GAME mentioned that although the core system would still be available, the premium (actually worth buying) version has sold out following “phenomenal demand”.

    Hmm is this true or not?

    I reckon that when the countdown finishes on that origen site they'll give us a release date and the launch lineup.

    I work for GAME as some of you may know, but belive me, it is NOT hype.
    Although you wont see anything offical-ish yet, people who work for large game companys have a, lets just say, "reasonable guess" at how many consoles they may be getting.

    1: Flamebait
    2: If they were the same quality, why would it matter which one he chose(don't say, "because 360 is coming out first" because that doesn't matter)?

    Without wishing to sound obvious...

    ...but being in the market first, with true 'next-gen' technology, will be a huge advantage

    Game developers are not registered charities (correct me if I am wrong Agent ) and they need to turn a profit

    Once a next-gen platform launches - it will become the 'console of choice' for the high spending serious gamers who will buy it first

    Truism if ever I heard one: Money spent on amazing new Xbox 360 titles will not be spent on (a) titles for legacy concoles or (b) titles for consoles that don't exist yet

    That rush of money will have been accurately predicted by the developers, manufacturers and stores alike

    Being first will mean a landslide of cash to great titles that 'get out of the traps' nice and early

    The technical advances in Xbox 360 from a graphics point of view are nothing short of breath-taking - and the same goes for the memory bandwidth

    Games like Quake IV will step up to a new level with Xbox 360 - and everything else on the market will look decidedly dull

    Kids (8 to 80 !) who do not possess one of these around the time that they launch will be certain that Santa don't love them
