Toysrus glitch panics Xbox fansFast-moving gamers who thrive on high-speed action got a shock this week with word that their preordered Xboxes wouldnt be delivered on time.
But faster than you can say "replay," Amazon.com cleared up the confusion, saying a computer glitch had mistakenly changed the shipping dates for people who preordered through Toysrus.com.
The gaming consoles--expected to be one of the seasons hottest sellers--will be shipped Thursday, according to Patty Smith, a spokeswoman at Amazon.com. The e-tailer jointly operates the Toysrus.com Web site.
"Customers can rest assured that preordered consoles will be shipped to them on the release date as promised," Smith said Wednesday. She said Amazon is working to correct the glitch so the shipping information will be reflected properly on the Web site.
