Wii availability

I'm amazed these things still are not readily available in stores. What the heck is going on with this thing? Is it a production issue? Is Nintendo intentionally holding back to keep demand up?

Re: Wii availability

Seems not too hard to get them anymore around here. Just have to make a few calls and find out when shipments are in. CC gets like 8 and sells out of them in about 2 days now here.

Re: Wii availability

I receive email notifications from circuit city when they come in and they're gone just as quick it seems.

Re: Wii availability

By the time you get those e-m ails they have probably been in the store since last night or something. My boss just called around and found out when the shipment came in. Went to the store and had the guy get one from the back on the day they came in.

Re: Wii availability

I got one off Craig's list for less than retail (once you add in the extra controller). I just read that they are anticipating April before you can walk into any store and find one on the shelf.

Want a Wii? Wait until April. - Nintendo Wii Fanboy

Re: Wii availability

Pretty crazy...but Nintendo seems to have the whole Supply/Demand thing down pat.

Re: Wii availability

It is - I remember having this conversation here a year ago and thinking Feb/Mar 2007 they would be everywhere.

Re: Wii availability

My dad (or more accurately, my little sister) lucked out by walking into a GameStop about 2 minutes after they received their shipment. Prior to that me, my parents, my sisters, and our extended family had been searching all over the state of Maryland with no luck.

Re: Wii availability

I have heard that the demand for the Wii stayed steady after last year. Nintendo has two factories working at 100% capacity and does not want to invest in building a third factory for fears that right after the holidays they would then have three factories running at 70%. SO from an economical stand point, it makes sense. From a customer stand point it sucks.

You should just get up at 6:30 and go wait in line outside of a Toys R Us like I did. Before you say that is stupid, remember I have had mine for over a year.
