Xbox 360 sells out, whining starts

In news that must be shocking to exactly no one in the Western world, the Xbox 360 sold out in no time today.

Hmm, people were lined up outside electronics stores all day yesterday, waiting for their chance to buy the console. And there weren't enough in the stores for everyone. Wow. Who saw that coming?

And in news that shouldn't be a surprise, but somehow still is, would-be Xbox owners coast to coast are honking because they can't find one. One genius wrote to MSNBC, "If the company could not make much more beyond the preorder of units why keep hyping it?”

Um, to sell it?

This happens every holiday season - there's something that everyone has to have, and there just isn't any way there's going to be enough production to make everyone happy. Tickle Me Elmo, Cabbage Patch Kids, flu vaccine - we've seen it over and over.

Stop with the conspiracy theories and get over it. You'll get your friggin game console next week, or next month, or in early January.
