One of the IT 'geeks' at work, who is also an XBox developer, confirmed to me today that there is a warehouse is Reading storing pallet loads of XBox Ones ready to be shipped out to UK retailers. And the Lucky git gets his white Dev XBox One in 2 weeks the lucky sod

BBC are said to be working on it. Don't care about ITV as I have never watched it.

he must have signed up for id@xbox, very few people got accepted for the first wave of dev kits though so he must be good.

Only people from the north, can understand northern accents. I once tried to order food in a pub in Burnley, and I thought the barmaid was giving me directions to Spain..so not probably not

At least we don't change to a different language with no consonants when "people not from around 'ere" walk into the shop/pup/post office.

Haha at least they are actually talking in a different language and are not meant to be understood coincidentally though, only Welsh northerners do that and I can't understand them either.

Not too sure, I haven't seen any pics apart from the one above. But I think that is purely just to show the size comparison of the two consoles

Nope. Horizonal only due to the slot load drive.

Xbox One Designed for Horizontal Orientation Only - IGN

And yes, before anyone mentions it I know the PS3 slot loaded fine vertically. An Xbox One isn't a PS3.

Just got my dispatched notification from Shopto, so that means it's all packaged and labeled and ready to go. Just relying on DPD for next Friday now.

Xbox One review embargo gets lifted on Monday apparently, with the exception of Forza and Ryse... probably to save the best and worst for last? Looks like the embargo for Ryse is literally just before release, never a good sign.

Where are IGNs Xbox One Reviews? - IGN

When I first heard about Ryse, I thought it was a game that was just made for me. It has everything that I like and then I saw it getting played and my heart just sank with disappointment.

Its not really something that's been on my radar but I kinda hoped it would turn out half decent, maybe get a 7 or 8 but that's not looking likely... I bet its the first title they release on games for gold.
