I think 7 days to go it deserves a new thread. Looking across the water to our American PS4 friends has got me even more excited for next gen.

Due to work wont be on till later that night and first game will be Forza as i have a feeling that might be a bit good. To fully test out my new console i'll probably stream at the same time. Will try and the snap and Skype functions on the Saturday

Did i mention there is 7 days to go

Hope early adopters get their console on time and encounter no problems in next gen gaming!

'Xbox On'

Yup 7 days to go and I am excited to, Fifa 14 and Forza 5 are coming with my console and I can afford 2 other games but not sure what to get yet. It's a choice between Ghosts, Dead Rising 3 or NFS Rivals.

Keep on forgetting i've got FIFA with mine. Dont think i will bother with it though so will be sold.

Definitely getting Ghosts as well. Everything else I'm open minded about and will wait for reviews.

Not sure about this but I think you just get a download code rather than a disc, might make selling it on a bit more difficult.

You're right - it's a code. It was revealed in the official Xbox Unboxing video.

I'm excited and I'm not even getting an Xbox One, looking forward to reading all about it though, on DS.

Of the 2 new consoles the X1 captures the imagination more, for me anyway, so make sure you post lots of detail, not just of the games but all the techi stuff that the X1/Kinect can do.

But how can you trust the person selling the code hasn't already used it? Or if you sell yours on, the buyer uses it then puts in a dispute on PayPal saying you sold them an invalid code?

Just seems like so many things can go wrong. Which is why the thread that was set up a while back where someone suggested swapping codes didn't take off.

Will have to see, but its like that with anything on Ebay with codes.

Just watching Sky Sports news, they are hammering the X1 adverts. Found myself just smiling when the Forza advert came on

You could look at it in this way, it's a free game and if you really don't want/need it then I suppose taking the risk on ebay wouldn't be such a bad thing. One thing I will say though that if the buyer does put in a dispute, not only is it a hassle but also negative feedback on your profile. It all comes down to whether the person selling the code thinks it's worth it I suppose I understand what your saying though.

you lucky buggers! here in The Netherlands we still havent received a release date yet!

Rumours have it that we will get it in February (although we can buy it elsewhere as long as we have a payment method registered in the country of purchase).

Not sure wether to get one in the UK when im back home at Christmas or wait for a day one edition here......

Driving in to work with a smile on my face knowing Friday is here soon. Was due to work till late Friday, got in this morning email saying the meeting on Friday now cancelled. Back to 'working from home' on Friday. Just need some good review scores and it will be my best Monday in a long time!

Just hope it arrives early on Friday

I just know the reviews are gonna come good The only game that I think may come mixed, would be Ryse.

Either way, I'm totally psyched for Friday - It's been planned with Military precision. I've never been so excited. I've also never spent this much money on a console launch ever. Call me a fanboy if you like, I don't care!

I have never had a console on launch day before so this will be a first for me. I had to go out and buy a new door bell yesterday so that I don't miss the delivery on Friday. I get paid tomorrow and will be able to buy another game or two but still cannot decide so I am hoping the reviews will help. I have already got FIFA 14 and Forza 5 so I think it maybe either Ghosts, DR3 or NFS Rivals. I would of bought Peggle 2 but it's been delayed.

Have you ordered from MS store?

It just could be due to ordering from them they wont take payment till Wednesday/Thursday. Other companies need to pay for stock so that's why they have taken money earlier

****, you have just reminded me, mine is getting delivered at my fathers address. He's hard of hearing but normally looks after my dogs that are his door bell. But they will be with me Friday now. He only lives round the corner from me. Might work from his Friday now.
