you guys are missing the point of pre-orders.

it prevents shortages as he can order the number of XIM4s pre-ordered and everyone gets theirs at the same time.

That all depends on the manufacturing company...they probably can only produce so many at first. also it depends how much money OBsIV wants to invest to produce them fast. so again pre-orders are ok but i still think that even with pre-orders he should pick and choose who gets them first...loyal customers should get first dips, then the rest....just a suggestion that's all

i don't disagree at all. but you are looking at days difference couple weeks max so not something to worry about too much i guess.

Judging by the thank you at the bottom of the post, I don't think Mr. Gorman is a member here.  He thanks someone named Nicholas, who I imagine tipped him off to the XIM4.

That sounds like the perfect cover for an Engadget writer on our forum wanting to stay anonymous.  :P

Edge wasn't i'm almost sure as i read engaget daily back then. but 3 i think was, not sure but fairly confident. google could help us if it was worth it.


i'm wondering about these things, OBsIV seems to have a plan for marketing believe it or not. seems to me it wasn't him that tipped Engaget but i hope he does make the rounds in gaming sites once the device is ready. eurogamer, kotaku, polygon, ign and gamespot are a huge media exposure.

unless OB is allergic to money or something he should want the exposure. a lot of sales will come from that.
soon..

I see the comments on there are all pretty positive too, usually you get a bunch of people moaning about the unfair advantage of M/k.

All kinds of whining there now.

Engadget comments are a joke, always have been. Most of the idiots followed them to The Verge unfortunately

Call me selfish but I'd rather have no crazy notoriety on this till we all get our first lol.

I realize that isn't realistic but just saying what I feel in my gut. But for OBsIV news like this is a good thing for his XIM business and I can understand that.

Selfish bastard!   I think for a lot of us (myself definitely included) have the same thoughts looming in our mind.  Want the Xim4 press but I just want to make sure I get mine and don't have to wait like in Xim3.     
Yes I am a selfish bastard too and proud of it.
