Sorry to fuel this fire. I stole it from some dudes post on another nintendo official web forum. You have to factor in how many stores exist, gamestop is in more places than walmart is, I know of 8 gamestops in my city, and 6 walmarts. You also have to remember, bigger stores, get more wiis, so 1 store may get 50, and another super store will get 200. It shakes down to volume here. I have been on a quest to get a general count of the wii and determine what the minumum number of units each store will get...worst case scenario so all of us can be prepared. Still gonna have 200k more units than ps3!
