you're an absolute mo mo.... http://www.bestbuy.com/site... next time try clicking a link or two boss...
No one gives a shyt-crap about the shytty-turd(core) X-3-craptastic-sixty. They're just a waste of shelf and inventory space with a good chance of breaking down with RROD. PS3 and Nintendo Wii, 4 the win!
360 is at #1 on amazon with Halo 3 right behind it at #2 :)
why people why!!! Report this we don't need these pages for every online sell out. Best Buy is sold out of them to, but its prob because there aren't a lot of them.
yeah but we had like 8 articles about how the ps3 was sold out at various online stores after it's price drop, so why all of a sudden when it happens to the 360 after a price drop, is this stuff not post worthy anymore??? if fanboys post articles and approve them from one side, then they really can't complain and whine when the other sides posts the EXACT same type of articles for the other consoles.....
at least the "CORE" 360 was actually in stock, unlike that bogus "80 gig PS3" article from CC that was sold out, when they have not gotten sh!t in stock. I've learned, this has become news4trolls. Bias contributors post whatever they want, regardless.
Seriously, does $20 really make that much of a difference?
If there getting the cores with the new chip and hdmi port it does
More good news! More sales = More Developers 'Jumping In'
Great news for 360, but it would be much better if the premium was sold out instead of the core. Maybe the core supplies were so low they sold out faster?
i agree, that's probably the one of the main reasons. there is probably like a 10:1 ratio of premium's to core's...although i am still surprised people are buying the core, unless people are buying them simply to have 2 360's to form LAN parties and stuff like that for gaming....to me, a $20 pricedrop is actually not anything since you can find coupons for online stores to get like 10% off an order sometimes...micrsoft should have dropped the price $50 on ALL sku's....kind of a wimpy pricedrop all around for the 360 if you ask me (i own a 360 so i am a fan of it, but i can still make biased opinions on faults of microsoft)...weird,, huh? lol
does that count for anything? They dropped there bundle to $399.99! It was $469.99. Good deal!!!

We still have plenty of Cores at work. In fact, I don't think we've sold more than two 360's since the price drop.
....so is the 80gb ps3 -leaves-
it says ps3's are not currently available, not sold out, it says out of stock for the cores.
awesome news for microsoft they will expect more dead console on arriving to them soon!!..lol..microsoft didnt shipped that many 360s out there anyways..this is hardly nothing.. Fact Microsoft will never ever make money in the gaming industry!
"microsoft didnt shipped that many 360s out there anyways" Your inability to correctly structure and grammaticize a statement never fails to astound me. You should play less games and concentrate on getting a decent education instead.
i wonder, im not a fan of the wii but how about a post stating that "after almost 10 months after release you still can't walk into a stor and just buy a wii, because they don't have one to sell you, now thats amazing, not to mention all online retailers are sold out also
2 are core systems 3 are Elites 4 are Premiums And on Amazon.com there are 3 xbox items in the top 5 best sellers...with the 9.0 rated game Forza taking the number one spot over the Wii and the clearance priced ps3 60 gig model. Even more impressive is the 360 premium is also in the top 10 and the Elite is number 12. The core is in the top 25 as well. So if you add up the core units, the Elite units and the premium units.....There is no question that after the price cut...it would topple the ps3 and possibly the Wii. Halo 3 is still going strong....Gamestop announced 2 months ago that it has taken 4 million pre orders for it...and on Amazon its in the top 5 snd the special edition is ranked 13....Same deal. If you add up both the standard and special editions....it most likely would pass Forza 2. Well price drops do wonders for sales....Even the HD dvd add on is in the top 25 sales. Thats impressive for an add on. I'm curious how many hd dvd add ons will be sold this year. I know that prior to the price drop it was almost 200,000...But its sales increase has been amazing with the 20 dollar price cut and 5 movie deal. WOW http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...
the stocks for core is unavailable online but available at BRICK AND MORTAR stores all x360 offers are available at stores http://www.circuitcity.com/...
none of them are sold out http://www.bestbuy.com/site... the price drop hasnt spurred sales of x360. It is just the same as before. no one wants x360
http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... #1. Forza 2 #3 Halo 3 #5 Madden 360 #8 Xbox 360 Premium #12 Xbox Elite #13 Halo 3 Limited Edition #14 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller #24 Black 360 controller #41 360 wireless Network adapter #43 HD dvd add on Just to put things in perspective....#88 is the Playstation 2...lol.... No sales spike huh? Combine the Elite Sales/Core Sales/ and Premium sales....and you most likely have the top selling console after the Wii. We'll see when NPD numbers are released for the next month.
Congrats but this is show that this site is not biased against the 360 so whenever good news appear of ps3 dont come with the excuse that its only because the site is full of fanboys.
There is people on this site that do not praise Sony. Just because this news was post means nothing about the ratio/tone/bias of this site due to large numbers of Sony fanboys. What are 12!, what sort of reasoning is that?.
Soccer MoM susy isn't going to buy her kids; tiff" and timmy" Elites because of its capabilties asuming her kids know what they are on top of her knowing, she will look at any drop in price for anything consumer good" as motivation!. Nasim you are a sad mutha fuka.
OMG Idiots xD xD xD x'D They are in for a huge dissapointment when GTA4 hits she shelves next year with a big HDD required sticker.
You retard it is sold out at circuit city and best buy, it says out of stock, hit me back when you learn how to read.

Microsoft - Xbox 360 Core System B4K-00001 Enter a new frontier of thrills and excitement Our Price: $279.99 Shipping: Sold Out Store Pickup: Limited Availability Check preferred store availability. http://www.bestbuy.com/site... #1. Forza 2 #3 Halo 3 #5 Madden 360 #8 Xbox 360 Premium #12 Xbox Elite #13 Halo 3 Limited Edition #14 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller #24 Black 360 controller #41 360 wireless Network adapter #43 HD dvd add on Just to put things in perspective....#88 is the Playstation 2...lol.... No sales spike huh? And when you combine the Core sales, the Premium sales, and the Elite sales.....lol....WOW.....And what happens when the ps3 clearence is over and the price goes back up to 600 dollaRS....LOL....The Ps3 will go back down to selling 80k to 100k a month.
as for best buy. CORES at available at stores http://www.bestbuy.com/site... as for AMAZON...it doesnt best represent sales of consoles But still in bestsellers list ps2 is above x360 http://www.amazon.com/s/ref... :) ps3 60gig is at no 4 on the list. Your garbage box 360 is at no 8 :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... In the best sellers list x360 is non existent http://www.amazon.com/s/ref... CONCLUSION just like Nasim x360s are available in huge quantities all over NA. FS is the loser here. They sold ZERO x360s this month
was it really necessary to post an article about this topic. does any really care? who buys their consoles at circuit city anyway?
the thing is x360 is not selling It is not just CC but x360s are available in all stores of BB,COSTCO, FS,WALMART and TARGET. most stores could sell at best 10 units..not more than that
how well this price drop does when NPD numbers come out. That'll shut up all the people who swear no one is buying them :)
you can see the dismal x360 sales by visting the links of all stores Most people are exchanging their premiums with elites and cores with premiums. x360 sales are very disappointing. People were never complaining about the x360's price but the ps3's price. 400 and 350 makes no difference. same goes to 280 over 300. as for elite no one wants a defective low powered console for 450$ when you could get a ps3 for 500$ with 5 free Blue ray movies and a BLUE RAY drive
but it still counts as units sold... plus, there really is no way to know either way.
the more systems sold to the public = the greater popularity of real video gaming (aside from party games on the wii). Can't wait till its common for every household to have at least 1 video game system.
You Sony fanboys need to deal with it lol. Just wait untill the games and the other drop in price PS3 will be finished. 2008 will be strong for both consoles not just the PS3.
Wow Nasim your really a sad excuse for a human being if you went to all that trouble. P.S. Future shop has none in stores and 45 online. And as others have said at Amazon, both went from the 40's to the top 15, and Halo is now beating the PS3
I know you hate it...but you can't debate it.... The price drop just happened a day ago....and the 360 Elite, Core, and Premiums topped the list of the biggest movers...all clocking in 500 to 1,200 % increases..... Now you have 3 xbox 360 games in the top 5....Forza, Halo 3, and Madden You have the Premium at #8 You have the Elite at #12 You have the core at #122 You add the sales of those skews....over the last 2 days....and most likely it would be #1 or #2....No doubt. I'm not talking about best sellers for the month. Its obvious since the clearence price of the 60 gig model....the sales would increase..... I'm talking about since the price drop of the 360 and its 3 models.... And its only been 1 day folks.....Wait till the NPD numbers are released next month reflecting the price cuts..... Bottom line is this....Sales have picked up. 360 games have also made major appearences on the movers and shakers list on Amazon over the last 2 days.... And Forza 2 is outselling the Wii and the Ps3 since the price cut of the core/premium/ and elite systems. WOW... And now Halo 3 is outselling the Ps3...lol...
Probably the most gimped console to be ever created. I would only consider buying one if xbl was free and if the 360 core for $199.99 refurbished.
price cut worked to peak interest. And Nasim nobody will believe anything you post in a 360 thread no matter how hard you try. They will only take your bubbles. The 360 will be a big hit with this price cut and Halo 3 on the horizon. I see Halo 3 selling 10 million copies.
once you buy the core or premiun kept the reciepts you never know whats gonna happen.
Poor souls who bought the Core. Idiots don't realize they just purchased a ticking TIME BOMB.....AAHHAHHAHHAA
For everyone out there that wants to hold this story to be very true, did you notice that they said only 5.6 million 360's have been sold in the U.S. to date. I checked VG Chartz since that is the website everyone refers to for console sales and it says 6.64 million 360's have been sold in the U.S. So I ask you is this story TRUE or FALSE?
its nice how it sees nasim has 2 active accounts. Larry..being one of them i believe. Its all so nice that sales have went up so much.
