Ted's Take

Official timeframe on next wave of Xbox 360s

BillyBe on the lookout for your alternative to natural gas heating starting this Friday!

From USAToday:

"Microsoft's Molly O'Donnell says the company has 'a weekly replenishment strategy.' The first follow-up shipment "is on the way, and it should be on retailers' shelves by the end of the week or for the weekend."

The article goes on to state that industry analysts believe that between 300,000 and 400,000 Xbox 360s were available and sold on day one.

1. Seeing is believing. Every manager I've talked to from Wal-Mart to Best Buy to EB Games to Gamestop said don't expect anything until Dec. 18 at the earliest. I hope all of these people are wrong as I still don't have one.

3. well i hope they do that and also send out more shipments before Christmas, i was told that I'm on the 3rd shipment so there is still hope for me to get mine before the end of the year. 400,000 units? and 300,000 for europe, good luck selling 3mil by march at this pace.

4. And once again, no numbers mentioned...I'm not looking forward to trying to grab one of the whole two units every store is likely to get.

5. My local game crazy got 25 units at launch so I'd think that they'd supply more than 2, and FYI I don't live in a big city the population here is 14,000.

6. 400k US + 300k EU + 100k JP = 800k

It was 3mil in 90 days.
So 2.2 mil in 12 weeks or 150-200k a week.

I think it will be more like 100k a week until the Canadian plant goes online then 150k.

(100k x6 + 150k x6 + 800k = 2.3 mill)

7. Let's hope that is true words, not wishful thinking. And, lets also hope, that it doesn't overheat, or have a glitch in the software like some of the first shipped!

9. well, called EBX today in Newark, DE Christiana Mall. They said that my pre-order, which was supposedly the 2nd shipment when they left me my first dissapointing message, now says before Christmas. Kind of a dissapointing timeframe, especially since I'm in Boston now for school. It's going to be rough getting it up here...

10. An employee of an east coast Best Buy has informed me that they expect to get more consoles sometime during the first week of December.

The Best Buy in question has plans to get around 35-40 Premium consoles.

11. The official word from MS is that Xbox 360 are being send to retailers on a weekly basis. It is then up to the retailers to decide how to distribute them to their stores. As far as EB and Gamestop telling people that they will not have any consoles until the 18th or even after Christmas is because their corporate offices are allocating them in such a way that they do not get any.

13. I preordered my 360 in early August, only 1 week after EB started taking preorders. I was 24 on the list, and the EB only got 20 units. So that places me in the 4th spot for the 2nd shipment. I've spoken with the manager of the EB, and he thinks that their second shipment will be anywhere from 2-4 units. 2-4 UNITS?!?!?! What the heck is that? If they get less than 4, then I don't get one til the third shipment! I pray that he's wrong!

I'd just hate to be the 20th guy on the second shipment list. Man, that would really suck.

I was also told that I will recieve a "buy one get one free" game coupon at EB for my wait. Screw that! I want more than that for waiting weeks for something I was guaranteed to get on 11/22.

This whole thing makes me FURIOUS!!!!!

14. Well up in Canada for me, my local Eb Games and Wal-mart are both saying December 7th. Don't know if this helps but most places are almost certain this is when the second shipment will be arriving. Hope this helps because Microsoft should be sending out the second shipment to most providers at the same time.

17. I just called a WalMart in Hamilton, NJ and the guy in the electronics dept. said that they are being told that the Xbox 360's are being recalled? I said that's not what Microsoft is saying. He says, I don't know, but that's what we are being told.
