Scrawl FX has reported that the US won’t receive any new shipments of the 250GB Xbox 360 until after Christmas. Microsoft responded to the claim by restating that retailers are seeing a large demand for the console thanks to Kinect.
“Yes, we’re experiencing amazing demand for Kinect,” said the representative. “Retailers are telling us they can’t keep up with the supply and we’re doing our best to expedite Kinect sensors so we can meet the consumer demand.
“We have a 5 million unit forecast for this holiday and are excited to see that people are showing up at retailers in droves, making Kinect the must-have gift for the holidays.”
$500 Million well spent.
