Madbum over at our sister site GamerzBlog is talking about the Xbox360 Shortages
What’s worse than having massive shortages of Xbox 360s? Having massive shortages and being teased by having a few more trickle in here and there. Stores around the nation have begun receiving very small shipments, usually 20 to 40 per store for big stories, of the popular next gen console from Microsoft. What’s even worse is the way these companies handle selling the systems. The systems are usually gone in the matter of an hour, and many times the company will jack up the price severely (Xbox 360s have shown to have sold for more than $1,000.00).
First thing you can do to cope. Is to go out an buy a PS3, or go fishing. Either way. I bet its going to be a long time before supply catches up to the high demand.
