Chancer, do you have your 360?
Not yet No.
The point I am trying to make is that all you end up doing over situations like this is raising your blood pressure to no gain.
Not one of you has answered the point I made in the last post.
What is adequate compensation in your opinion?
I would have contacted them with something along the lines of a heavy discount on the package or a free game and free accessory (controller, cable whatever) That way you get extra from them and can put it to the back of your mind. if they don't play ball take your deposit back and never shop with them again.
If they are not giving you something really worthwhile to make you wait, why even bother with petitions and slagging them. Take your business for every purchase elsewhere.
You lose nothing by cancelling your pre-order, because when they get them back in stock everywhere else will have them.
