Xbox/Xbox Games
MS is admitting a minor defeat - the 360 isn't quite selling as fast as they'd hoped.

Blame bad reviews, overhyped hardware issues, lack of launch titles, or even shoddy "backwards compatibility" that really isn't for this one folks. Blame whatever you like.

Or maybe blame MS for not getting the hardware out quick enough.

Analysts believe sales of the console had hit around 1.3 million by the end of the Holiday sales period. But as January moves along, retailers have yet to see evidence of shortages easing.

Xbox 360 chief Peter Moore explained, "Nothing's perfect - you've got a complex piece of hardware that includes1,700 different parts. Every now and again the line will slow down because something's happened and there'll be a component that didn't make it that morning."
