The Xbox 360’s were already sold out in Japan’s Yodoboshi Camera store, but get this, the Xbox 360 is sold out all over Japan, not just that one store. It’s sold out literally all over Japan.
The console is “so” sold out that Microsoft Japan even had to put out an official statement apologizing for the lack of consoles, saying that they will ship out more Xbox 360s next month.
To all customers
We truly thank you for all your patronage in the past.
Currently, the Xbox 360 is sold out, and retailers are unable to restock their supply. This is a result of our own sales targets being exceeded by the actual customer sales. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience to our customers, retailers and business partners.
Here at Microsoft, we are moving forward quickly with console production, and plan to ship the standard Xbox 360 model out this September. Furthermore, we will sequentially be shipping out the Elite and the Arcade models. We ask that you please patiently wait until the console is shipped.
We truly thank you for your patronage hereafter.
