    Wii still has great games coming as well.
    You don't seem to realize that.
    And wow Microsoft has good games?..really.
    Thats good considering its been out a year longer than the Wii, so it should have good games by now.

    Plus people won't not want Wii's all of a sudden, not being able to get one will not drive them away, rather make them want it more.
    Especially after Galaxy just dropped, its a sought after Christmas present for those who are Wiiless/Galaxyless.

    So there goes your theory, which actually is pretty old, because Nintendo cranked up production a long time ago and now stores get a minimum of 10 Wii's in each shipment, so trust me it's more than just the lower price and the idea of a hyped scarce quantities marketing scheme from Nintendo.
    Fact is the demand is still higher than production can keep up with so they with hold shipments until they can ship at least 10 to 20 units per store.
    did you just contradict your self here?

    The Wii is going from strength to strength and its not just the console that is selling well but the software is now too. Nintendo has recently sold more software than Sony for the first time since the PS1 was released.

    With SSBB, Mario Kart and Wii-Fit on the horizon things look extremely good for the Wii next year too.
    ok lets compare markee titles nintendo has released almost all of its big hit titles except mario kart and smashbros, sony has just now released two hit titles hsword, and jack and dextar, so yea i hope nintendo would be above sony in software sales. You people that say microsoft has no good games obviously have been hiding in a closet for the last two years. Almost every other month if not every they release a blockbuster hit, not including the hit arcade titles and independent titles that they have out that are all in hd, and provide innovative gameplay. So yea nintendo is doing good but lets just get it straight they only brought a controller and after the casual hype dies down this holiday we will see what nintendo can dish out.

    Nintendo has increased its production of wiis to 1.8 million a month and it is reflected in stores. The TRU here got 81 this past Sunday but they still sold out in 15 minutes! I have noticed this increase over the summer, they are trying to meet demand. I really don't think this is happening on porpose.

    I said it once, and I will say it again. As long as Sony and Microsoft duke it out, Nintendo will easily retain #1. Because the Wii has almost nothing in common with the other two consoles. If you studied history you'd discover the PS2 was the weakest console on the market, and it won by an insane margin of 114 million units worldwide! It's still freaking selling. Sony or Microsoft has to fail for one of them to stand a chance at obtaining #1. There's not enough market for both of them to surpass the Wii, and that's why Nintendo is #1 now, and will be for a while.

    Ok. How can you tell I'm not being realistic? I asked them myself. Why would they lie? Did I not say that they have increased thier production? Would the greater number of consoles in the stores reflect this?

    are you kidding me, this is probably the most ignorant post I have ever read, you say stop being a fanboy in your sig, and then start to post like a 360 fanboy.......


    1)yeah mario kart and super smash bros arne't out, but so isn't Star fox, F-zero, pikimin, animal crossing, mario sport games(besides msc),kirby, and im' sure shiggy will come up with another new refreshing franchise...

    2) heavenly sword wasn't really rated good due to it's short, dull and repetitive gameplay

    3. ratchet and clank is third party, therefor sony didn't release it...

    4. no body is saying microsoft has no good games, you think we are, all we're syaing is that microsoft SHOULD(and does) have a better selection than the wii, since it's been out for a year prior, but wii looks like it's catching up

    5. every month a good game? hmm i thought that was the wii.....

    6. nintendo's virtual console is better....face it, with such classics as loz: oot(highest rated game of all time(well not anymore)), super mario world, and past metroid games, it owns microsoft's arcade..

    7. innovative gameplay? all they release is shooters, and more shooters....cept viva pinata, that's innovative..

    8. who's they? us? i bought the wii because of shiggy......not the controller, can't play tony hawk games with it..

    9. "we'll see what nintendo can dish out" it's the leading selling console, produced the best(or second best) game of all time, and it keeps just selling more....


    the mario that's roomed with mush
    my wii is not connected to the internet, so i can't play brawl online for a bit....please do not spam inbox with friend code requests

    Did you just make that up completely? I would like to see some evidence for that statement because it sounds like utter crap.

    How long do you think its gonna be before people stop waiting for a system and go with another? If nintendo realy wants to be on top it would boost its production rate and then lets see how many wii's realy get sold.
    Evidently many people want to wait for this system, as its sales are through the roof. Nintendo have already bumped up production a couple of times, it's not as easy as just simply pushing a button. Please get your facts straight.

    Most stores only get 3 with some of the big name stores may just may get 5, now think about how many gamers there are in the world do you think 3 per store is enough to satisfy a demand?
    Once again a little evidence would be appreciated, as at this pont you're just pulling these figures out of your head.

    People get off the numbers, and stop believing the hype. Its not a good thing that people can't find wii's thats realy a bad thing.
    It's not a good that that your console of choice is so popular that demand is outstripping supply? You're incorrect there. Having this much interest in the Wii encourages third party support and further investment in the console.

    What else is so funny its that you nintendo fans are the only ones that talk about this stuff like it matters. While every one else just plays there great games and go about thier day.
    You're the one making these ludicrous claims...

    I like nintendo and i have fun with some of its products but it has a realy long way to go to Topple the compitition. Thats nice mario galaxy is a good game but just as wii has its select few good games microsoft has a whole boatload of great games, not including original independent titles.

    Fair enough, though that is only your opinion.

    Most gamers don't just own a wii, so just because they contributed to the sell doesn't mean the wii is the greatest thing to hit gaming its just an alternative, and a second console.
    I think you'll find that is not completely true. There are many people that solely own the Nintendo Wii, such as myself.

    Thats funny, the local Best Buy here just got a shipment of 125 consoles. They had 148 on launch day. The local Circuit City had 53 on launch, and just got a shipment of 62 for Black Friday. Not only that, but as of this past Monday the local Wal-Mart distribution center had over 700 Wiis shipping out for Black Friday to the local Wal-Marts. And this is a very rural area (although within an hour of 2 of the US' largest cities, NY and Philly)

    Nintendo is selling just over a million Wiis a month. Which would lead any sane person to beleive that they are producing that same amount. Sure MS had problems with demand early in the 360's cycle, and fixed it. But seeing as MS is not moving anywhere near 1 million units a month, I don't see how that relates.

    To tell you the truth, I would be willing to bet that if Nintendo shipped every Wii produced JUST to NA (all 1 million a month) you would still see shortages. The Wii is just that popular with gamers and non-gamers alike.
