I got an email too. But mine says early december.

Yeah i ordered mine with dance central for £135 or so. How do you know about the cancellations ?

just a hunch, well ive seen it happen before. ive now cancelled mine as game have pre orders available. i ordered the same as you and so did many more ppl and they have been fobbed off. i think they wrongly priced them and now want rid of the customers who ordered at that price. seems as though the customers who ordered at the higher price are getting priority

Mine was the Kinect by itself.

was that the reduced price one though ?

You're right, it was. Been so long since I pre-ordered I forgot I'd got it for £120.

Yep got the email too with estimated delivery of early December. I'm sure I pre-ordered this back in July at the lower price, what a shambles.

Cossie - Game's initial stock of pre-orders ran out early October, they are still taking pre-orders for the next batch but can't guarantee delivery before Christmas!

Going to fone and complain tomorrow.

Game are still doing orders for delivery on release day - ordered mine late last week and it's been dispatched (but being held by RM).

Anyone else played kinect yet ?

Yeah..I ordered mine back in August and have been told it will be coming a week later than release date. Really not happy after ordering so long back. I've spoken to The Hut who said they were let down by their suppliers. This doesn't help me! I'm going to have to wait, as I wanted to bundled game for the £5.00. Last time I'll be using The Hut again. I've emailed them as well to see what they have to say.

For the kids? Really? X)

I was put off after Dark Knight said it doesn't work if you have ceiling downlighters. (The downstairs floor in my house has nothing else throughout!)

Actually, I don't believe ANYTHING DK says! (And I have no idea what GT5 is! - But will have a stab at Grand Tourismo?) Amirite?

However, it would be pointless if the type of lighting did affect.

You are right

The little mobile thing i played in at London Zoo had spotlights in it and there wasn't a problem.

Something tells me DK didn't point out any possible flaws with PS Move..........
