I'm going into the Basingstoke store first thing, no idea if they will have any.
Turned up at 9:30, none in stock but expected within the hour. Went back at 10:30, still no stock and now no idea when they will be in...

Used to live in Basingstoke but moved to Andover :)

I went to Basingstoke this morning (11:40AM) as well , I got told that they have them in stock , but they are not the shelves yet so they couldn't sell me one , the rep told me that they will be on the shelf at 1PM , needless to say I wasn't going to hang around. :O

Totally disappointed with the Basingstoke Store , my usual Apple store is Southampton , but I was enroute to collect something in Basingstoke so I though I swing by the Festive Place ... not going there for a while.

Try brighton all on shelves have a day out as well :)

KRCS are now listing it on their website so there's a chance they might have it.

No sign of it on the John Lewis and Currys websites.
But direct from Apple

What's everyone think of the 200 mb app size ? I guess we could still get amazing games via internet if the server does most of the processing abd internet is fast enough ?

Basingstoke store now has them on display. Picked up a 32GB device and a Nimbus controller.
