No. Before concerning whether it is natural, you should focus on getting the meaning of your sentence across. This sounds like a conversation between a writer and a publisher. But the exact meaning is unclear to me.
AnonymousWhich is natural?
Neither is natural. Try this: Our offer will depend on the number of copies we already have.

I had asked what the difference between the 2 were a while ago, so I'm interested to know what you think Malrey of this

You'll either go to a good college or a bad one depending on the grades you get.
You'll either go to a good college or a bad one based on the grades you get.

Your version:
Following your example "Our offer will depend on the number of copies we already have." I assume you would word the sentence like :
Your going to a good college depends on the grades you get.

Could you tell me what you think please?

Depending on the gaming console you own you will either have online capability out-of-the-box, or will have to purchase an add-on network adapter

Whether you have online cabaility or will have to purchase an add-on network adpater depends on the gaming console you own.

We would like to book you depending on how much a shoot with you cost. (speaking of a photographer)

All of you examples are fine. I would need to see the context in order to know which specific wording I would choose.

alc24Whether you have online capability or will have to purchase an add-on network adapter depends on the gaming console you own.
Both examples are fine.

Also fine (as corrected).
If you tell you boy, you need to study harder, "You'll either go to a good college or a bad one depending on the grades you get."
What's the difference between the 3 and is one active and the other passive? Are both natural?

1 You'll either go to a good college or a bad one depending on the grades you get.
2 You'll either go to a good college or a bad one based on the grades you get.

3 Your going to a good college depends on the grades you get.
Your version:

Wha about here?

1 Our offer will depend on the number of copies we already have.
2 You'll either get X or Y depending on the number of copies we already have.

1 Depending on the gaming console you own you will either have online capability out-of-the-box, or will have to purchase an add-on network adapter
2 Whether you have online cabaility or will have to purchase an add-on network adpater depends on the gaming console you own.

Is this natural please?

I would like to know if "Depending on" goes with "either" like in the below and the other above examples and if it's natural? I haven't been able to find this in the dictionary.

1 Depending on whether you believe me or not, I'll either stay or not.

Thank you very much Malrey
