Straight from Best Buy's Retail Insider newsletter comes the (leaked) word that while Xbox 360s will be fully re-stocked between Dec. 11 and 16, they will not be made available to consumers until Dec. 18. Why? To keep all the advertising and marketing plans on track. Nothing terribly sinister about it. But the newsletter has other nice tidbits, like a warning to not force consumers into buying bundles. It also warns against holding product for "select" customers and employees—which means that if you know someone who works at BB, slap them some cash quick!
