Asian Xbox 360 launch delayed

Microsoft Corp. has pushed back the release of its Xbox 360 game console in some Asian markets, as well as Australia and New Zealand, due to “supply constraints,” a company executive said Wednesday.

Microsoft had originally planned to release the Xbox 360 in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand on March 2, but that has now been delayed by two to three weeks, said Julie Leong, a Microsoft spokeswoman in Hong Kong.

“There’s just too much demand; we just couldn’t make the March 2 date,” Leong said.

I suspect too little supply is more accurate than too much demand, but we get the idea. New dates:

- Feb 24 (unchanged): South Korea
- March 16: Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore (was March 2)
- March 23: Australia and New Zealand (was March 2)

On a related note, the Xbox 360 did launch on time in Mexico and Colombia on Feb. 2.
