360 blossoms this spring

In a press release issued today, Microsoft flaunted their upcoming spring roster of over 80 titles for their next-gen system the Xbox 360. Also, they touted the addition of a third manufacturing partner Celestica Inc., which should mean that 360s will see more availability in the coming months. According to Microsoft, they will be distributing two to three times as many Xbox 360 consoles to retail outlets each week, so the hard-to-find systems may not require all-night camp-outs to obtain them any more.
