"Microsoft is currently withholding comment regarding specific hardware shipment numbers for its Xbox console, but several sources indicate that the launch-day ship numbers could be significantly lower than expected. According to retail sources and buyers, Microsoft has told several specialty retailers to stop the preorder of Xbox consoles and to expect launch shipments to fall short of the expected 600,000 to 800,000 units."
