    Nintendo says there will be a shortage of the top selling Wii thru Christmas.

    Better start looking now if you want one.

    I think that is the point, they already ARE working there asses off and barely keeping up with non-seasonal demand. lol

    This isn't a surprise to me and was expected.

    Of course you can pick one up on the Bay with no problem if you don't mind paying a premium.

    It has nothing to do with their production.
    They're not lacking on that at all. Its the demand, not the supply.

    So many people are still looking for a Wii, even to this day its hard to find one sitting on the shelf.
    Demand is even higher now, with the release of some really good games like Brawl and Galaxy.

    Good luck with that. A week before Black Friday? Your chances now are about 50/50 depending on the location to find one now, a week before America's official start of the Christmas buying season would probably be about 10%.

    I wish I could give more encouragement, however now is the best time to get one before 2008.

    It has everything to do with there production, the demand continues to exceed the supply.

    However regardless Nintendo is still composed of human beings, and while modern machine technology helps with speedy production there is still a maximum limit to how much any producer can produce within a practical production model. Nintendo's has been well beyond max since it's release, and all efforts to increase production have been met with even more demand.

    Go Nintendo.
