    After thinking for ages i want a 360 premium and want to get it soon (like most) but it seems like the online market seems to get sold out very very fast!!

    What i would like to know is Where (Game, Argos, *ahem*?), What day and What time did you get yours?

    Its just so i can predict the best day to just turn up and get one at local shops.

    Any help about Game and there Deliveries days would be great..

    Your best bet would be to goto your local game shops every day or ring them, they are getting stock in but not a lot and it goes very quick.

    I was lucky got mine on launch nite without pre-oder was just pure luck.

    I got mine in Toys R Us on December 31st at 10:20am :)

    Round my way Toys R Us seems to be the most likely place to have stock, but expect a bundle with some rubbish DVD that you end up paying £12.99 for. After them i'd say GAME is an ok bet but round here that means a £759 package for a premium :eek:

    Virgin is a good bet for one off deliveries of a few consoles here and there.
