Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) of Xbox Live has tweeted that the company had run out of Xbox’s last month. It seems that with the release of Kinect and the Xbox Slim, the company is having a hard time keeping up with demand. Larry also states that Jan and Feb are going to be tight as well for Xbox shipments.
NPD tomorrow. I found out we ran out of consoles at end of the month (!) so don’t expect to win Dec. (1/2)
Jan/Feb supply is tight as well. Likely amazing YOY growth numbers for Xbox. We’ll find out tomorrow! (2/2)
Sales data is due to be released by the NPD, so we will find out just how well Microsoft did last year shortly.
Update: 1.9 Million
