The Xbox 360 has virtually sold out in the UK as gamers rushed to snap up Microsoft’s next generation games console, say retailers. Dedicated fans queued overnight or in the early hours of the morning in the light of limited stocks.

Now hundreds of Xbox 360s have appeared on the online auction site eBay, selling for more than double the retail price. The limited stock has led retailers and gamers to criticise Microsoft for not supplying enough machines and with the launch in Japan looming on 10 December, and pressure on Microsoft to replenish US stories, supplies to the UK may be very limited.

In the UK, more than 200 gamers queued for hours in the rain for the midnight launch of the console at Game’s flagship store in London’s Oxford Street.

Considering the predicted shortages and the weather in the uk, who in there right mind would camp outside a shop for 6 hours? Ahh ofcourse, hardcore gamers!
