MS to miss Xbox 360 target

When one of the main words that describe your launch is the word "Shortage" you know you're probably not going to make your shipping targets.  Microsoft has officially backed away from their claim that they will ship 3 million units by the end of February and is now saying that they will ship 4.5 to 5 million units by June according to this article at Boomtown.  While they've now added a third chip producer to help crank out 360's I'm not even sure right now that they will be able to hit that mark.  Hopefully I'm wrong about this one but I guess we'll find out in five months.
