How likely do you think it is to be able to purchase the console on the 22nd without a preorder. I asked Argos and they said they 'expect to have non preordered xbox ones on or shortly after release day'. GAME told me I would 'probably' get one before Xmas.

My local GAME told me they would have free stock a week after launch, but you could try all the Supermarkets. Marrisons, Sainsburys, Asda and Tescos. Not sure which of these will be taking pre-orders or if they will free stock.

I'm just hoping somewhere has free stock. I did preorder at GAME but I was too late for day one. I've booked the day off work on the 22nd and will try Argos as soon as they open then move on to currys then supermarkets if I have no luck. Seems mad that I have 430 ready to pay and may not be able to get one!

I've also seen that people are selling their preorders for ridiculous money on eBay.

I have a pre order at my game store I am not using apparently its a day 1 on Friday.

Now I was one of the folks who got shafted when Blockbusters folded again lost my pre order but lucky for me I did get my full refund.

So Blockbusters were actually not to bad really, the got a deal with Microsoft for pre orders so I am getting mine straight from MS.
