Even the BBC News picked up on all the going ons with the Xbox 360, and wrote an article with a title many fans can agree with. The lack of consoles at launch, probably partially due to Microsoft’s worldwide launch plan made many North Americans disappointed.
Many American electronics stores sold out of the coveted console on the first day it went on sale and many who queued overnight were left empty handed.
Shortages were made worse as many gamers did not want to settle for the lower-priced version of the gadget that lacks a hard drive.
Some enterprising Xbox 360 owners cashed in on the scarcity by instantly re-selling their console on eBay.
What did you think of the Xbox 360 launch? Were you disappointed? Would you have grabbed a Core Console just to have a 360?
