Looks like the BBC News understands the current gamer, as we sit and wait to have our chance at getting one of the consoles.
Some Xbox fans who pre-ordered the console as far back as August are angry after being told they may not receive the machine before Christmas.
“You might have thought that Microsoft, if they are determined to topple Sony from the console marketplace, might have learnt from the stock shortages that plagued the PSP,” said one gamer in an e-mail to the BBC News website.
“You can’t be a market leader if you have no products to sell to customers!”
This is pretty much the mindset I am in right now. I know a few people have the games already, but no console. I would be one of those people if I was not so stubborn, as I want to have something to play the games on before I drop the money for them. I think it is getting pretty rediculous, and if the reports of a small second wave this weekend are untrue, then my confidence in Microsoft will be soundly shaken as it has been more than a week and there have been no new large shipments of Xbox 360’s for an eager market.
