    Supply Vs Demand

    Do you guys think Nintendo Wii's are going to be sold out the first day? Is it necessary to camp out for one? I live in Reno, "the biggest little city in the world" and I was wondering if camping out was necessary considering how many Wii's Target, Wal-mart, Circuit City, Best Buy, K-Mart, Toys-R-Us would have. I wonder if I could just wake up early and just grab one off a shelf. Although camping out would be fun...

    I am not sure if it will be a little difficult or not. Nintendo are shiping a lot of Wiis but they may not be enough. But another option is to pre-order so you wont have to camp or have the possibility of not getting one.

    Wii funds $400

    they shouldn't be all sold out
    1 million Wiis for US should be enough for the opening day
    but also remember 4 Million more are coming by the end of December
    So you should really be able to grab one off the shelf if you go in early enough, you should be fine!

    Rumored to be 11 million at most.

    heres a funny comic about supply and demand
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    Eagles may soar but weasles don't get sucked into jet engines.

    I did a little research. If we follow previous sales, Gamecube launched with 450,000 - 500,000 units. Sales confirmed that 350,000 - 400,000 units were sold. These are the numbers I got when i reserached a but, but from memory, I do remember the struggle of getting the Cube at launch, people were fighting and such. The point is, if their launching 1,000,000 wii's at launch, that is a hell -a- lot. So if you didn't pre-order, I do not think you should worry, if you do a little shopping or calling around I'm sure your find one. Though, Just to be safe, I will be starting a line at walmart at around 4 or 5pm for the midnight launch. I will be waiting in line for 24 Hrs for the ps3 so I can sell it, and pay for my Wii, and maybe buy a plasma tv with it if i'm lucky Anyways do your own research with the numbers, and if your to young to remember, ask your parents about how they got their grasps on the gamecube. Good Luck

    If my numbers are off dont throw a fit, after all the internet isn't the most reliable source of information.
