Well, these past few months, I'd look in Target or Walmart, and look at the PS3 and Wii section. WalMart has only 60 Gigs now of PS3, no more of the others, and no wiis. For months.
Target has had a full case of PS3, and never a Wii in sight.
I origionally thought it's because people just don't want PS3, and are buying up the wii.
Well, yesterday I was in Target, and I learned that one of my friends works the electronics department. I was like, "Cool." So, they just got some new digital cameras in, and it's his job to play with them so he can learn about them if people ask. And he was showing me some cameras (I think Samsung has a camera, 7.1 Megapixl, 2.5" screen, and a 30 FPS movie mode, and a plain old GOOD camera for only $130! Beats the snozz outta my Cannon Powershot A520 that I spent $200 a year and a half ago! Boy was I mad.) and then I asked, "Y'all ever get any Wiis? (I live in the south, though I'm about one of the only people who talk Southern. Makes me sad we're losing our culture to MTV and BET. I knew ye well) And he said, "Nope. I havn't seen a wii in here in a while."
Here, in Louisiana, I guess Nintendo said, "Hey, them hicks don't know how electronics work. I guess we're done sending consoles over there."
So it may not be because the Wii is the hottest thing on the shelf right now (NOTE: RIGHT NOW), but because Nintendo just doesn't know your city exists or something.
Just some food for though. Nintendo might send your city Wiis every week or so xD
