GDC: More Xbox 360s available

Microsoft said this morning that starting this week, it will ship two to three times the number of Xbox 360 consoles to stores every week. With three plants in China’s Pearl River Delta up and running, console components are in full production, the company said.

The announcement comes as the Game Developers Conference takes place in San Jose, Calif.

No word on how many consoles the company is talking about or why it took this long to get to full production.

The company also announced new games coming this spring, including:

“Battlefield 2: Modern Combat” and “Burnout Revenge” from Electronic Arts

“The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion” from Bethesda Softworks/2K Games

“Final Fantasy XI” from Square Enix

“Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter” from Ubisoft

And finally, the unusual table tennis game from Rockstar Games
