BLOG: EB's Xbox 360 allotment - 40,000: After all of the hysterical reports of Xbox 360 launch day shortfalls, I checked up on the status of my two orders - one for me, and one for Grrl Got Game. I learned some interesting stats from an EB employee that I thought might interest folks who may be in the same boat:
- EB accepted 75,000 preorders but is only getting 40,000 units on launch day.
- My store in Seattle is getting 45 units but accepted 98 preorders.
- Customer service reports that all online orders placed before Sept. 5 will ship at launch.
