Well I am officially bummed out. I will not be getting my pre-ordered 360. I don’t know what else to do other then go find a store and wait for one. I know where the Best Buys in my area are going to have the most so thats a help.
I have been reading the XBOX Forums and there are alot of upset people out there. I can understand why. When you drop money and let people know your intentions to purchase a unit 90+ days before launch. I feel that Microsoft knew what the demand was. Production should have been increased to cover the launch demand from Presales.
Now I don’t work for Microsoft, but I feel like I listen to the people who write on and market the product. People like Major Nelson and Trixie. There has been little info from them on launch shortages. Until I made the call to Gamestop today I was unsure where I was on the list. I did know that I was on the second shipment. I have been in there several times since my preorder asking and I was told my chances were good to get one on launch. I was also told several times that if I did not get one on launch that it would only be a week before it gets there. Now its being said that it will be at least 2 weeks.
Now I have been saving to make sure I could get it on launch. Just to say I have one is not enough. Its what I wanted for XMAS. I might have it but who knows.
I really wish that Microsoft would have been had more in the supply chain before launch to make sure that we would all get one.
