"...Over the weekend we stopped by our local overstock and discount store in Seattle and were shocked—shocked!—to find a stack of nearly a dozen brand-new, unopened Zunes selling at $168. That’s about 25% off the going rate of $229 we’ve been seeing around ze Web, making it a good deal for someone looking for a Zune. The question is, however: Is there actually anyone looking for a Zune? Or did everyone who wanted one get one? Or are these simply a few units that fell through the cracks into a ghetto scratch-and-ding store? The numbers above mean these could all be possibilities."
With Microsoft reporting a $289 million loss, it doesn't make me happy to see Zunes selling for $168 (especially since I paid full retail for mine). I'd say this is the exception to the rule though - don't expect to find these at your local dollar store. We know they're not flying out of inventory, but I think it's too early to see them on the promo shelf.
