Notes From the World of Retail

One of our DQ Deep Throats in the world of retail game stores let me know that while Gamestop decided on allocating Xbox 360 pre-orders at the company level, EB is using allocation at the store level. So each EB store has its own allotment that they can fill. That explains why EB stores are mentioning "slots" and the Gamestop stores aren't.

He also pointed out that EB and Gamestop are still separate companies at this point.
