XBOX 360 being held back at local Wal-Mart

I now have an xbox 360 (core system) which I purchased today in Lewistown, PA . When I bought it, there were 2 other ones behind the counter. After a manager discovered this, they told the clerks that they were not supposed to be selling those. The clerk responded with "Why not, there is a whole stack in the back?", the manager then said they weren't supposed to sell them until January - something about them being dated for sale then. The other two units they had were then taken away by the manager.

Why? Is this coming from Microsoft or the local Walmart? Anyone else come across units being held back at local retailers?
