Amazon sells out of Jap Xboxes

But refuses to say just how many that is

Source - C&VG

Amazon has sold through its entire allocation of Japanese Xboxes. Pre-orders for the console, which is due to launch on the 22nd of this month, were taken for the first time last weekend. Microsoft is refusing to reveal how many units were made available to Japanese retailers in the first place, although it has owned up to making 50,000 of the clear grey limited edition Xboxes that nobody wants. A European spokesperson has told C&VG that the company will only release sales figures when they're ready and / or accurate, as opposed to each and every time they fire up their email clients. They know what we think about that, anyway. As we said last month, nobody knows how Japan will react to the Xbox. We are interested in how Microsoft gets on in the land of the rising sun - we're just loath to find out via four hundred badly formatted press releases… Related Feature - Ménage à Trois
