    I decided to buy an XBOX console the other day, so I sold all my PS2 stuff on eBay, went to Amazon.co.uk found the XBOX console page. Clicked on Consoles...

    But there are none left! It seems, like the new PS2s, they're all sold out for XMas. I don't need it for Xmas, I just wanna play Live with a load of friends who have Halo 2. I've looked all over the place, but the best deals seem to be from negative rated eBay sellers.

    Could anyone tell me where to get an XBOX, where they've all gone, if they've stopped being produced, or if they're just out of stock? Would it be worth just waiting for a XBOX 2?

    Ooops....forgot to mention...I need a PAL (UK/Europe) console.

    Never look to buy consoles around this time of the year.

    Try ebgames or gamestop or some other major game store.

    I found out that UK stores are being restocked with XBOXes on the 13th of Jan. However, I think I'll wait for info about the XBOX 2 & Halo 2.5 before making a decision.

    You might as well get it now. Xbox 2 probably won't be out until 2006.

    i to have been looking for a x box today here in the u.k cant find 1 any where. i phoned up dixons they said they arnt sure when theyll get some in and the ps2 sold out so fast that it had a knock on efect and every 1 whent after the x box.(that is the exact words the man on the phone said to me)so dont shout at me.

    i traveled to swansea/cardiff/bridgend all over the place they all say the same dont know when theyll be them in.

    in the end i payed £80 to have my ps2 fixed.

    yeah xbox 2 was delayed and so it will come out somewhere around the beggining of 2006. Plus when I get my xbox 2 I will probably wait untill a new version comes out so later I wont have the crappiest xbox 2 out there. Anyone else think that way when they buy game consoles?

    amazon.co.uk have xboxes back in stock.

    I dont think you can start comparing ps3 and xbox 2 since we hardly know anything about either of them.
