9rules this Week


I’ve decided that every once in a while I’ll focus on fellow 9rulers with articles they’ve written you might be interested. The problem is that the 9rules Network is heavily focused on design sites and not so many gaming sites. But there are a few!

This week Aelon.net wrote an article about the XBox launch. Here’s a little taste:

Swing back 3 weeks. I am cruising around the local mall and the Xbox 360 launch fever has just started. I ask the manager of a local EB about word from on high. He says that whenever their store preorders things you get a ballpark from the distributor on how many can be sent (for high demand items). They got the ballpark of about 150 for Xbox 360s. They preordered 200 (telling the last 50 they would probably be in the second wave). Guess how many they get? 30. Ouch. If that is the extent of the production delays Xbox 360 will become the greatest console that no one has.

Head on over to Aelon.net to check out the rest.

    One bestbuy in Ottawa fullfilled 70 in-store pre-order. BestBuy was the official launch store so I guessed they were allowed more units.
