Wii Remains Scarce, Still Hugely Popular
It would appear that Nintendo, despite having released a console system that has remained unprecedentedly appealing to a broad audience, still can’t manage to make enough of its product to go around. In the words of Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo America, the Wii has “effectively been sold out for all 33 weeks” (of its being on the market), and is somehow still “poised to become the No. 1 platform worldwide very soon”.
This is of course assuming they get their act together and actually produce enough of these things. One would think that a major corporation such as Nintendo would have the whole division of labour/factory production thing down by now, but it seems that this is not in fact the case.
