Xbox 360 shortage linked to memory chip

The shortage of Xbox 360 that left many holiday shoppers in angst was due in part to Microsoft's decision to use a new kind of memory chip from a German company, Infineon Technologies, according to people who are familiar with the game box's design. The Xbox 360 has been hard to find on store shelves since it debuted in November only to sell out early during the holiday season, prompting complaints. One of two companies supplying the Xbox 360's storage memory chips, Infineon, has had trouble making enough of the chips at the right speed for the game console that debuted last November, according to the sources. As a result Microsoft has not been able to meet the demand for the console.
