Microsoft "Microsoft has some catching up to do. It's not a phrase you hear every day. But whether it's Apple Computer's iTunes-iPod combo or Google's advertising engine, the software maker's top executives readily admit that they are coming from behind. In a rare joint interview ahead of the CES, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer outlined their plans to catch their rivals and discussed why it's Sony that will have to play catch-up in the video console wars."

I was just at an E/B store yesterday, he said the only issue is that he is not recieving them very quickly. Only like 2 a week.

So, unless the distrubuter has something aginst E/B stores, I find gate's statment to be somewhat false.

EB isn't the only distributor of Xbox 360's.

Stores in my town seem to get about 3-12 360's a week depending on store size, and 2 of the larger stores (PC World and Curry's... both part of the same chain btw) have yet to run out of XBox 360 Core systems.

So either the supplies are as fast as Gates says or... they're not selling that many... the latter is very doubtful
