BusinessWeek: Xbox 360 shipments to be "boosted"


Check out this morning’s BusinessWeek article on increased Xbox 360 shipments…



“Microsoft Corp. is boosting its weekly shipments of Xbox 360s after a supply shortage hampered the widely anticipated game console’s launch in late November, the company said Tuesday.


“Beginning this week, Microsoft said it will ship two to three times as many Xbox 360s to retailers each week. The company added that a third manufacturer, Celestica Inc., is now producing the system and its components.”


“Boost.” What a great word.


Here’s another one: in-stock. (OK, two words.)

    Of course, 3 x 0 = 0.  (I’ve been waiting on the Best Buy’s around me for weeks, and they haven’t had a single one come in the door.)

    You and me both (as well as many others). I’ve been using the Xbox 360 Inventory Tracker (as I noted on http://spaces.msn.com/m3sweatt/blog/cns!16E057D43E293EF4!124.entry) without success for a premium, unbundled system. I still have a unit on order, and have yet to see one in stock at any brick & mortar retailer.
