    GameStop CEO says his stores won't be stocked with Wii for the holidays


    Flickr’d How long has this modded GameCube been out? Oh, right, it’s been two years and they’re still hard to find. BIZ: What are your thoughts on Wii, a console that’s still impossible to find after two years? DD: I’ve never seen this type of demand before.

    Xbox 360 shortage, RROD on the rise

    Here’s a mix of good and bad news for Microsoft. The Xbox 360 sold so well during the holiday season – 1.3 million sold in December – that you can’t find it on store shelves now.

    PS3 Shortage Solved: Some Jerk Bought 200

    Looks like we’ve found all the missing PS3s — some eBay punk bought up 200 and is selling them at probably 200% profit. Way to screw with babies, dude. Why not go to a day care and steal a bunch of blankies. Then beat up a kid for his Pokemon cards. These appear to be overseas models, so who knows what that means for buyers in the U.S. PlayStation 3 Shortages [DavidCiccone] Read More
