I went to 5 different places today and they were all sold out. Gutted. Mind you, my friend informs me that there is a 90 GB update that includes 4K textures for quantum break. Or quantum of solace . Or quantum computer. All quantum leap. Whatever it’s called

It's not that great.

Tbf some of the delivery blocks the drivers get are 18.00 - 22.00 and yet you're meant to deliver before 9pm.

If I'm reading that right, that's pretty bad for both the drivers and the customers? Drivers are told to delivery by ten, but customers are told it'll be there by nine (or eight, in my case)? I may have misunderstood. :)

I called them about half eight and was told it'll be with me by ten. It isn't. :(

You've read right. I've had some blocks last 5 hours when they should be finished in 4. That means if it started at 6pm they might be struggling to get to you.

Luckily I do during the day so I don't really deliver that late. Sucks for you and your delivery guy though.

You're very close to the depot so you should be fine. :)

Now been told the delivery team have had a known issue all day. Would have been nice if they'd been able to let customers know earlier than 10pm, but such is life. This was after the supervisor tried to tell me the manufacturer hadn't supplied the item yet, which was odd, as I'd had an email saying it had been handed over to the courier. Ah well, serves me right for pre-ordering. ;)

Mine came from Amazon, I'm one of the lucky ones. I was told 'by 8pm' on the order page and 'by 9pm' on the details tracking page.

Plus side I believe you're getting a £20 apology?

It won't do 4k on my 4k monitor and hdmi/displayport adaptors apparently don't work either which changes my plans but it's a gorgeous thing and the pad is improved.

£20? No. I was told “definitely no compensation” at first. After moaning that the guaranteed delivery date didn’t have much of a guarantee, I was told a month’s free prime, but as my wife is the prime account holder, I was offered £5 credit instead. Later, the person I’d spoken to at 20:30 called back and offered £10 credit. So maybe £15 altogether, at best. But so far, only £5.

Why does it matter that the account was in your wife's name?

No idea. The chap on the phone was not incredibly coherent.

Yes. Supposed to be of some benefit in 1080 too, though possibly not enough to justify the price hike over the normal Xbox One.

I've no plan to get rid of my Pioneer Plasma anytime soon, also don't use the console that much.

But you do look at the hardware specs and think maybe I should :)

Did some reading about Scorpio. It appears to be a really nice console with no exclusive games I want to play and approximately none of the friends I want to play with. gg MS.
