If you're planning on filling your stocking with a spanking new Xbox 360 this Christmas you might want to get your name on a pre-order list - according to UK Xbox boss Neil Thompson there's a good chance that the next-gen console could suffer shortages shortly after it launches.
The current Xbox has been hobbled by stock shortages since before Christmas last year, leading to accusations that Microsoft is phasing out the console in the run up to 360's launch.
But Thompson has admitted that huge demand for the next-gen Xbox could result in more unhappy faces on Christmas morning. "I think demand is going to be phenomenal so we see that as a really difficult thing," he told UK industry journal MCV.
