Amazon's $100 360's Slammed

I got a friend to try and get in on one of those Amazonian $100 360 deals. His luck turned out to be exemplary of the process. He got in early - refreshed a few times ... and then got nothing but server errors until the 360's were all sold out. A few other reports from the gamesphere claimed similar problems. Boo to Amazon to not being able to support the deal properly. If you're going to offer something which is clearly designed to maximize the number of users rushing to your site at the same time - grab a couple extra servers ... you're gonna need 'em.
