The new XBOX 360 will be in short supply this christmas. I just called a few Seattle area stores to see when they will be getting more in stock. Here is what I learned:
Northgate: More in December 18th, not sure how many, no waiting list.
Tukwila: More in transit, sometime before Christmas, don’t know how many.
Bellevue: No idea when, limited supply, first-come first-serve.
Circuit City, Bellevue: No idea when, but they will be in limited supply, and sold on a first-come first-serve basis.
EB Games, Pacific Place: It will take until January to fulfill their existing pre-orders.
Note that the game consoles are currently selling on ebay for more than twice their retail price.
