Microsoft Xbox 360 UNITED KINGDOM Launch
OK, so Microsoft are liberating their Great White Hope from the gaming world, the Xbox, onto the UK population on 2. 12 prizerebel
. 05. This is only a couple of weeks after our cousins from across the pond get their gaming mitts on the US Xbox 360. In fact, Microsoft are planning a near simultaneous global release from the Xbox 360. Around the world in under 3 weeks is the type of form that makes our own Phileas Fogg look favorably bone idle.
No one has tried this before, and with good reason. The logistics of attempting to launch an eagerly anticipated product since the Xbox 360 to a global market in pretty much the same time frame is daunting to state the least. What it should guarantee at the very least, is that anyone available with a spare Boeing 747 freight plane can expect to be fully booked up for those 3 weeks. What it means to us, the consumer, is less appealing. Demand is almost certainly to outstrip supply, which means festive season discounts will probably be rarer then hens teeth, and that the best way not to be disappointed is to pre-order the Xbox 360. Most of the large retailers are using orders already and there are scores of websites, like www. microsoftxbox360. co. prize rebel
united kingdom, that are promoting Xbox sales as affiliates from the larger retailers. Microsoft themselves are admitting there is going to be tears for some, "We are going to have some disappointment with retailers and consumers" J Allard, Xbox 360.
Whilst Im not trying to sex up the probability of shortages of the Xbox 360, if you want to be one of the first to own this new generation gaming system, and you havent already pre-ordered, then youd much better hurry prize rebel
