Does anyone see the obvious stupidity inherant in the XBox shortage?
MICROSOFT: The Xbox 360 is going to change the world! It’s the greatest gaming platform ever made! Everyone will want one!
GAMERS: Sounds good. How many did you build?
MICROSOFT: Ummm… eleven?
Either they suspected their platform would flop but cranked up the hype machine anyway (making them lying, short-sighted idiots) or they knew it would succeed but didn’t make enough (making them just regular idiots).
Nice one. And just in time for Christmas! Yay!
