Eventually. Suposedly, near holiday because it must be under the tree of all Nintendo fans.

So how long did it take for the Wii to restock?

A long time after the wii sold out of its initial shipment. It was hard to find for months, with wiis selling out as fast as they came in.. Intact eb in Ottawa got 3 wiis one day and were already sold out by the end of the day

It was rare until March or so, if I recall right.

keep in mind though. Even if it does restock faster ebgames and GameStop did put people on a waiting list after they stopped taking preorders.. And they didn't even get enough wii us to fill all preorders in Ottawa. So even if the restock happens faster eb and GameStop in Ottawa has to go thought the remainder of who preordered and the wait list before they can sell it to anyone else

The Wii went through a small lull here where they came back in stock around the summer months and them completely disappeared again as October/November approached. They were still nearly impossible to find around here for the NEXT Christmas shopping season.

In terms of shipping numbers, NIntendo seems to be manufacturing at about 1.2 million Wii Us a month (for the world, with the majority probably going to the US and Japan). There shouldn't be many problems finding them after March for sure, and it's probable we'll see it happen earlier than that.

As for pre-orders, I'm pretty sure Nintendo has stated that you'll be able to get a Wii U without preordering, at least in December. I wouldn't expect to just waltz into any store and find one, but I doubt there's been 3.6 million preorders, which is probably how many Wii Us Nintendo plans to make in this time period.
