"win" December with their US sales as they ran out of stock. "Jan/Feb supply is tight as well."
Hryb does predict "amazing YOY growth" though when the NPD figures are finally published today. Wedbush Morgan reckons they sold 2.5m.
"I found out we ran out of consoles at end of the month (!) so don’t expect to win Dec," the Microsoft exec, : "Jan/Feb supply is tight as well. Likely amazing YOY growth numbers for Xbox. We’ll find out tomorrow!"
Larry Hryb is of course Xbox's Major Nelson and he's just celebrated 10 years at the software giant. Analyst firm Wedbush Morgan say Xbox 360 sold 2.5 million units in December, with year-on-year growth around 92 percent. We'll see soon enough.
