Update: EB Games Australia has commented on the rumour.
Microsoft has gotten back to us regarding the rumour we posted earlier today that suggests EB Games Australia may have $10 million worth of busted 360s that it can’t sell, and the manufacturer is unwilling to compensate it for.
You might be a bit disappointed by the reply:
We’re not going to comment on this.
Luke Plunkett for Kotaku US was kind enough to buzz all the EBs in Canberra, and like me, he got the same “out of stock” line for the Xbox 360 Premium.
Should Microsoft pick up the bill for the damage its apparently poor QA has wrought, or has EB Games dug itself a massive hole for issuing the recall itself mid-last year? Let us know.
