'Dear Mr ********,

Thank you for your email.

I can confirm that the Super centres will be the only Asda stores to receive stock of the Xbox 360.

Each store will receive 20 and after this we will have sold out until Christmas as it is unclear as to when we will be able to receive further stock.

The stores stocking the Xbox 360:

Bridge Of Dee - 01224 319319
Cardiff - 02920 613213
Derby - 01332 661 751
Eastlands (Manchester) - 0161 230 3500
Edinburgh - 0131 669 9151
Great Bridge - 0121 557 7822
Havant - 02392 445 800
Huyton - 0151 449 4600
Livingston - 01506 835 980
Minworth - 0121 313 7100
Patchway - 0117 317 2400
Pudsey - 0113 236 1222
Sheffield - 0114 263 5000
Swindon - 01793 707 770
Tamworth - 01827 302 180
Trafford Park - 0161 748 5841
Watford - 01923 250 380
Wigan - 01942 243 522

I hope this helps and thank you for your email.

Yours Sincerely'

HMV took pre-orders. Your best bet is gonna be ASDA, TESCO or Argos (as they are selling them in store over the counter as well as pre-orders) on the other hand you could just trawl through all the independants in your area.

In Argos they dont have the cat numbers for it in the catalogues yet but I managed to find them so people can go in and see if they have them in stock with the stock checkers:

Premium: 567/9216

Core: 567/9223

Just thought that may be useful.

I have a preorder with game in a town near leeds. I preodered it a long time ago. When preodering i specifically asked the dude working there if 100% i would get one on release day. he said yes.

More than likely he just said that so he could get 2.50 commision in his wage or something.

If they back down i will be so pissed off.
