That image up top basically says it all, but if this scan of a corporate print-out is to be believed, expect more 360s to arrive at Best Buy stores for the Dec. 16-18 weekend, with no fewer than 20 Pro systems going on sale Sunday the 18th.
Whether that means any systems besides the 20 on reserve will be sold before the start of the new ad week is a question best suited for the product allocation people, however.
This means of distribution doesn't exactly fit in with all the officials reports of a weekly-replenishment strategy we've been hearing, but it does fit in well with a strategy to lure all the last-minute Xbox shoppers in the week before Christmas. Good strategy for an official launch partner when systems will be scarce due to the imminent launches of the 360 in Europe and Japan. Can you say, "Ka-ching"? In other news, hopeful early adopters wait some more.
