Xbox 360 hype over?

I remember braving the cold and rain for 12 hours to claim my new Xbox 360 on launch day. I also had clients asking me to obtain one for them at any cost. All the game news outlets got wind of a second large shipment coming into BestBuys across the nation sparking yet another lineup of individuals braving the weather for hours and in some cases days in order to get one these under the tree in time for Christmas. Now that the holidays are almost past us, is the insane need to obtain this fine piece of gaming hardware over? Due to my recent visit into my local BestBuy I would have to say it could be. I walked in today to claim my copy of Dead or Alive 4 for the 360 and to my amazement I saw a table set up with three Xbox360 premiums with related accessories and games. The table was manned by several BestBuy employees. I asked if they were for sale and the reply was ‘Yes’. My next question was how many do you have, figuring the reply would be the three I saw. My jaw dropped when the reply was ‘Twenty Eight Premiums just arrived this morning’. They had gone on sale that morning, I arrived a little after 2pm and they had only sold one unit. People passed by looking at the boxes stacked there but no one purchased one during my visit to the store. So if any of you are looking for 360s and are in the Westchester County/NY area, I would give the Hartsdale store a call or a visit if you’re close by. I would assume they still have plenty in stock.
