You may have recalled that we called the Kinect the hottest electronic gadget of the season (here).  It really wasn’t a stretch, because a lot of places were as well.  Not to mention it is a bad ass piece of gaming hardware. 

Well this past weekend, I personally wanted to pick one up as a gift, and well lets say that the well has run a bit dry.  Best Buy…Sold Out..Amazon…Sold Out…Target…Sold…Sold Out…Gamestop…Sold Out..Well you get the drift.  I went to at least five stores and 15 websites and nothing.  And there is no way I’m paying some inflated price by someone on Ebay trying to make a profit (mostly because I am jealous I didn’t think to do it).  Of course I could shell out the $300 and pick up the newer 360 bundle, but I don’t like the person I am buying this for that much.  My love has limits here folks.

It appears that Microsoft will hit their (story) goal of 5 million units sold by the end of the holiday season, I just hope that I can get my hands on one of them before then.  If not, little Timmy will have to learn the meaning of rain check.  Can’t wait to have that conversation..

If some of our fans out there have seen them online and we might have missed it, please kick us an email at or message us on Facebook!  Thanks!
