    why is there still a shortage of Wii consoles in the US?

    I haven't visited this forum in a few months...

    I can't believe there's still a shortage of Wii consoles in the US. I got mine on launch day and it has been played really hard, thanks to my friends and neighbors. None of them seem to be able to but it. I don't know how many of them have offered to buy mine, but obviously my answer was always no......

    Can anyone give me some logical reasons for the shortage?

    Thanks!

    Well a serious answer would be that they are in high demand.
    A non-serious answer would be that pirates keep stealing the shipments so they can play warioware.
    Post is there ^^^
    How dare you state a different point of view, you complete fanboy! /sarcasm

    ....just be thankful that you can still buy the units at retail for $249 when you can find them.

    Good question, especially since in asia and other places, they seem to be all over. I wonder why they don't send more here?

    I think its all about the high demand for them. Everyone wants one lol. heres an example, in my area there is a very, very low demand for PS3's so you can walk right in the local WalMart and pick up some (not like anyones going to lol). Although, in my area the Wii is so hard to find that you need to go to other parts of the state to even get a shot at one.

    Dude.....your lucky.....my town is just all about other crap!
    In Parker CO (my town...please dont hunt me down) all the girls are as bitchy and spoiled (including most guys which is pretty sad) as they can get...worst of all they purposely use this squeaky voice because they think its cute! Then its flooded with all these damn skaterish emo bastards!!! Wheres the gamers?! No one in my town is a gamer...or they just play a game or two every once in awhile and forget about it...... Ive talked to everyone in my school....no person is a gamer....**** PARKER
    I know its a bit off subject...but I just needed to say something...

    My Point....youll be able to find a Wii in my town! So your still looking head over here!

    Despite all the Sony fans bashing the Wii, it's outselling them almost 10:1 now. It should be a reminder to Sony that the most economic system wins. Affordable to the consumer and game developers. When you have $30 million budgets for PS3 games and $5 million for the Wii, what would you choose as risk? Also the PS3 crowd is currently the smallest market. More developers are picking the 360 and Wii.

    The Wii will be in demand all this year non stop.
