Has anyone else given in to temptation for the 'Next' Generation?

That should give you 2 wireless controllers.

 

I'm jealous for 2 reasons:

1) I don't have the time at the moment to play too many games.

2) I don't have the spare cash to get one. :P

Game.net sent me a confirmation email this past friday telling me my XBOX360 has been picked and packed and is ready for dispatch for delivery by December 2nd, I can't wait.

 

I got the Premium one along with Perfect Dark Zero, King Kong, Condemed, Project Gotham Racing & Kameo. Also ordered 2 Extra Wireless controllers with plug and play kits for both of them for when they need charging. Going to cost a small fortune, but it should be worth it!

Im heartbroken that i wont be able to get one of these untill probally next year (money problems mostly). However i will be getting on of these bad boys the second i can.

 

Also a question with the DVD fuction do you still need to go out and by a Remote kit?

Not this time around no, but it will be easier to use. I know that the remote comes free with the initial batches of premium packs, but they won't be included in later batches.

i reall want to buy one of the new gen consoles but is the 360 the best? I mean of the others that are coming out do they compare well to all of the stuff of the 360 (which i have to say looks amazing), or is the 360 the best of them?

Well I didn't preorder the 360 cause im saving my money for my beloved PS3:wub

 

It should be fun after they come out and see what console got the most sales and what console do the people think it's better.

I ain't gettin' the 36 'till I got my Revo which I have 130 quid saved towards..but will be bout 280 soon 'cause I'm not going on holiday this year stayin' home with my dad which gets me 100 then gonna sell some games to get the rest...

 

When I do get the 360 I might actually get the core version even though it seems fairly poor I don't need the fancy stuff I just wanna play games on it...

I think when the PS3 comes out i will do the right thing and buy that. Because lets face it limiting yourself to one platform is just down right stupid imo.

The thing isn't which is the best at this point, because they're all of a fairly equal power.

 

The 360 is out NOW, the PS3 probably won't be out for at least another year, and the Revolution for about 6 months.

 

So, if you get a 360 now, you can save up for the Revolution and then the PS3 as there's a 6 month gap between each. :D

Anyone know where you can get one, before Christmas? All the shops round here stopped letting you pre-order months ago.

Can you get one, if you get the dearer package? (I heard that somewhere, but don't know if it's true or not).

 

Ta for any help :)

One game I played that looks incredible, is Call Of Duty 2. I don't know how other people rate it, but I thought it was fantastic. Brilliant graphics, and great gameplay. Need For Speed (Not sure which), looks good as well.

It's going to be hard to find one now Jack, the console pretty much seems sold out already.

 

If you seriously want one though I'd suggest going to your local Woolworths and WHSmiths as these two seem to only have started to take pre-orders.

 

Other than that I'd say it's going to be really hard to get hold of one before 2006.

You might try eBay, but you'll be paying over the odds as LOADS of people will want them.

You can indeed advance order it from amazon, 279.99 for the one with all the fancy stuff. But you wont get it this year, see below:

 

Platform: Xbox 360

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.
