Can we get a little heads up on what'll happen with the 360?

I'm just wondering when we should expect to get our xbox 360's after the release date. Unlike the thread posted a while back, I want to know [b37277a5abe]when[/b37277a5abe] the 360's are coming and not [b37277a5abe]how[/b37277a5abe] the 360's are coming.

It'll probably be shipped out in segments and the earlier people finished, the earlier they get it. When do you think the first shipment will be, Jake?

He won't answer. I think they are avoiding the fact that we aren't getting ours on the release date. We'll probably be waiting months.

man it be nice to know... already have plans for that one... would suck to tell the person getting it that they will have to wait... i had hopes of getting mine close to launch (finished back in june) and had it lined up as a chirstmas gift for a friend.... i was told i was like one of the first 50... so if i hear anything ill be sure to pass info along

That's pretty shady, but I think it's probably how it will end up happening. This whole time they claim "get your preorder in now so you can be playing it on november 22nd while none of your friends have it!", but they probably haven't even preordered them like they say.

Also, if any of you have finished free360xbox lately, what's your order number. You don't have to give me all of it if you don't want to. Mine is -

4895lili

I left out the last two digits. I got approved and went processing on August 3rd. So I guess I am kind of an early order.

You do realize that specific order #s are not reserved for a specific site, right? They don;t have any patterns to show just by looking at the number "yes, that's a 360 order, oh and that other one is a Nano one."
Anyway ) I don't recall Gratis making any claims that they preordered/are going to preorder the Xbox 360 - on both their new site, and the old one, I might have missed it but I doubt it )
We'll get it eventually....

[quote8f59d28db3]t's official, Xbox 360 will be hitting stores on November 22nd, less than 2 months from now. Some folks will be saving their dollars for the big day, but with FreePay you don't have to - it's not too late to pre-order yours on our website and get one totally FREE. What's more, you'll get the full Premium Edition with wireless controller, detachable hard drive and headset all part of the package. It's not too late to sign up at FreePay Xbox 360s and be ready for November 22nd!
[/quote8f59d28db3]

Thats on the freepay site. They say its not too late to pre-order yours and to be ready for Nov 22nd, which most people would assume means they will ship them out around launch.....but technically they make no guarantee of this just to save their asses. I remember how i waited nearly 2 months to get my PSP from gratis so i'm not getting my hopes up for the 360 either. Hell i havent even been approved yet (waiting for approval for way over 10 business days)

I guess we'll just have to wait and see

[quote7219ac6f29]Get the Premium Edition Xbox 360 at launch
Posted on August 18, 2005

When some companies say they put their customers first, they don't always back it up with real action. Some companies don't even say it (not mentioning the names of other companies that claim to give away free products). Here at FreePay we put the customer front, square and center. That's why customers who get a FREE Xbox 360 from us when it launches will get the whole deal, not the basic 'core' system - you'll get the full works

Free Xbox 360

The Premium Edition Xbox 360 System (value $399)

li

Xbox 360 console
li

20GB detachable hard drive
li

Wireless controller
li

Wireless Xbox Live headset
li

High-definition AV and Ethernet cables
li

Xbox 360 Media Remote Control
li

Detachable faceplate

Xbox Live Silver membership

Pre-order yours today and get it FREE![/quote7219ac6f29]

this is my first free product, but im not worried that they will come thru for us... this xbox is a gift for someone, so of course it would be best to have before christmas but as long as i would have a idea on what the situation is i would have at least somthing to tell them.... had this baby done since june... so i hope freepay comes thru and shows all these doubters in my area!!

ilanbg

19-11-2005 11:51:09

I guess I'll be selling it sometime around June, when the price has gone down to like $300. (

That's ridiculous. It should be free. PC's have it free, why can't they do that for xbox 360? Microsoft is gay. Why don't they just let the game developers set up the multiplayer like for PC's?

Mother fuckin werd. I mean PSP can do it wtf!? That's a step in the right direction. And plus not even having integreated wireless ROFL. They are just trying to charge us all hugely marked up products like 99$ for a wireless card. It gets worse everytime i hear something new about it. Plus the launch lineup blows ass. Many are current gen games with small graphic improvements. Plus, they ARE charging 59.99$ for games now, you think that extra 10$ could go to help pay for companies supplying their own multiplayer.

50$ a year is bad... I am not poor but over the life of the console, I don't wanna have to pay 400$ to play online which i could do on the PC for free (theoretically 400$ for console + 400$ for live over the lifetime + 50$ for AV cable for me + 50$ for play and charge kit + 30$ to get another controller + 60$ a game. This could really add up). I mean they made this thing sound all great when the first specs were released, then these minor details are ruining it. I hope PS3 doesn't make this mistake with multiplayer, which is one of the most promising things about current gen games.

Actually YES!!!

Take it to Walmart. They will take back anything or exchange anything without a reciept. Unethical yes but whatever.

They do however blacklist you if you do this like 2-3 times in a year meaning you cant return any more merchandise without a reciept

Why is this so hard for people to understand. They are slowing releasing them until Christmas to keep the hype and demand up. The systems aren't unfinished and the problem with the 360s isn't that widespread. Also, most people are finding out its not even the 360s that are causing the problem, its the power supplies. If you get them some decent airflow, they work fine...
