Rumours abound about an apparent shortage of Xbox 360s being down to Infineon, one of the two companies manufacturing chips for the new console, having been unable to keep up with demand. Because of this shortage of memory chips, it is claimed, Microsoft hasn't been able to satisfy the Xbox demand anywhere near adequately. So, if you haven’t been able to get your hands on the next generation console yet, blame Infineon.

The new Xbox debuted last November and quickly sold out in stores across North America. Microsoft has said repeatedly that it plans to replenish stocks soon and that its ability to do so will be helped by the addition of a new Chinese factory run by the Canadian company, Celestica.
