Topping thousands of Christmas wish-lists is the new Xbox 360 games console from Microsoft. The only problem seems to be getting your hands on one as they are selling out as soon as they hit the shelves (both real and virtual!)
How can you get one before Christmas? Without a lot of legwork, you will miss out, as you will need to be in the right place at the right time. That's where the Xbox 360 Locator comes into play.
This new monitoring service, based at http://www.xbox360locator.co.uk, is maintaining a constant watch over a growing number of leading websites and alerting signed up members by text message the moment stock is available.
As Xbox 360s are selling out within minutes, a text message alert helps keep our members ahead of the stampede, and hopefully secure one of the new consoles in time for Christmas.
UK stores are getting regular deliveries of new Xbox 360 consoles and accessories, in line with Microsoft's promises, but these are generally the Core System, and not the much more popular Premium Pack. The quantities are also fairly low, with some retailers still trying to fulfill their pre-orders.
With retail outlets unsure when they will receive consoles to sell, Xbox fans are spending entire days monitoring websites, waiting for stock to be listed, and poised over the "Add to basket" button. But not everyone is able to do this every day until they find a console. That's where we come in.
Once your mobile phone is registered with the Xbox 360 Locator, we will text you whenever any of the well known retail websites have new stock available and are accepting orders. With deliveries selling out within 10 minutes, this instant notification of availability has helped people jump to the front of the queue and source the elusive console. Of course, you still have to be quick, and able to get to a web browser, but with an early warning system such as the Xbox 360 Locator, you stand a much better chance of bagging the number one Christmas gift.
With eBay prices topping £500 for a Premium Pack (compared to £279 retail), members of the Xbox 360 Locator stand to save lots of money if they can be in the right place at the right time.
The website also has message sections for a number of retailers, so feedback can be left to other visitors with details of their experiences trying to locate a console for Christmas.
