Here's an article from Yahoo today about how 360s will remain scarce:

Yahoo Story

Make sure you read to the bottom. I guess the CEO of Microsoft is crap outta luck for getting his son's a 360 for Christmas. He hasn't been able to buy one and he can't get one for free. I found that tidbit interesting.

Why has is never been like this before? USUALLY, when a new console launches, it's hard to find, but AT LEAST you can find it.. within some distance of where you live, why is the 360 so friggin unbeilavably hard to find, it's crazy.. guess peeps just gon have to wait it out.. for awhile..

Is the demand really that high? Or did Microsoft just not make nearly enough 360s? Didn't this happen with Nintendo 64? I remember everything for N64 being impossible to find for the first several months it was out. Couldn't find first-party controllers or anything.

yeah the N64 WASSS hard to find but at least you could FIND the thing.. with a little shopping around.. and a litlle drive here and there... you could FIND one.. not the case with the 360... you could drive through 3 states.. and not find one of those things man... dont know y this is though... ~shrugs~

The problem is with the number of chips. Concidentally, Apple had the same problem a while back with IBM (maker of the PowerPC and the XBOX 360 processor).

Sounds like Best Buy is getting more shipments on the 18th.
I don't know about you, but after the other stores have been saying they will not get a shipment in until January or later, I don't think you'd catch me camping out at Best Buy. It is probably gonna be a MADHOUSE. Plus, the closest Best Buy for me is 6 hours away. :(

Are you serious? :shocked: Wow. There's at least three Best Buys within 15-20 minutes from here. I see them all over the place. But yeah, probably not worth a 6 hour drive just to camp out in the cold all night and MAYBE get one the next morning.
