Sorry Timmy, No Wii This Christmas
Posted by Sammy Barker
Following on from last years drama when Ant actually got calls in to the NintendoLife office asking for advice as frantic parents scoured the Internet and high street looking for Wii consoles; Nintendo of America's George Harrison seems to be counting on a sequel.
In an interview with Reuters at this years E3 Harrison said:
"There is no guarantee that we are not going to have 'out-of-stocks' this holiday season. If you see one, buy it. Don't assume that you can come back later and find one" said Harrison.
"We're trying to figure out what's the reasonable monthly level, and as we've seen every time we ship product to the market, whether it's in Japan or here in the U.S. or in Europe, it sells out in a matter of days."
Ironically - retailers are only just starting to have regular supplies to stock. Expect them to be depleted come the run up to Christmas.
