Yes it’s true, a total of 4 large stores in Japan are completely sold out of Xbox 360 Elites, granted we don’t know if these stores had 10 or 10 000 units but they are sold out.
Maybe the Japanese just don’t like white consoles and Microsoft has finally cracked the island. But then I remember that the Wii is white and completely outselling everything else. Also the previous xbox was black and that bombed terribly.
Maybe it is more to do with low stock levels and Lost Odyssey than anything else.
