Xbox In Short Supply, But Not For Next Gen

VE's got word that given the rush on Xboxes lately stores are starting to run out. Supposedly MS is on top of this enviable problem and will rectify it soon.

In similar news a source at a major publisher is saying that the next iteration of the Xbox will launch with a million units in Europe. At first this may not sound enormous, but I believe at last count there were something in the neighborhood of 15 million Xboxes sold thus far so if they sold 2 million units worldwide in the first month or so after launch they'd be in a pretty good position to do a lot better than this generation; and be in a really good position for Sony's launch of the PS3.
