Best Buy No Longer Stocking Core Xbox 360?
Rumors fly on the internet faster than the speed of light, and the latest involves electronics retail giant Best Buy and the Core 360…
Apparently, the latest rumor attests that the Core Xbox 360 will no longer be stocked at Best Buy retailers. This could mean multiple things, but surely the conspiracy theorists will come up with something crazy!
They’re conspiracy theorists… It’s what they do.
Joystiq’s insider notes the following:
The sheet, according to our source, shows the description of the Xbox 360 Core hardware and underneath it is the word “deleted, meaning it is being taken out of the system.” The out of stock date reads 7-29-07 and the larger image (found after the break) shows the pref code “y.” According to the source, “This means replenishment of this item is not expected.”
Microsoft has denied these allegations, of course, and claims that the Core 360 is still a part of the 360 family.
More on this as it develops.
