Last year, many of us were very shocked by the low supply of Wii’s, mainly because every kid and parent wanted to have it. This low stock was caused by the Wii’s, then, very low price and fun factor, but by the looks of things we maybe in for it again this Holiday season. When interviewed by the Los Angeles Times, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime hinted of the fact that there could be a chance that the Nintendo Wii may not be able to meet the demand this Holiday season.
In fact the Wii is still very hard to get your hands on today, Reggie even stated that, “one of our competitors’ projects,” he said (we’re thinking he meant Sony), “they will sell 10 million consoles worldwide this year. For us, that’s three months of production.” And if you add it all up this number doesn’t add up this will mean that they aren’t meeting production standards. Here’s why: the Wii production is suppose to be up 33% over last year, from 1.6 million consoles per month to 2.4 million. That’s why they aren’t meeting the standard.
