    Wii Ads Pulled Because of Scarcity

    Nintendo has a well-known campaign of ads for the Wii with a pair of Japanese men demoing the Wii for random consumers. If you enjoy these commercials, you'll probably be forced to search on Youtube for them, as Nintendo is now temporarily ceasing their advertisements for the Wii due to the product's popularity.

    A spokesperson for Nintendo said "We have been running the campaign all year round, but we want to take a responsible stance this Christmas and not fuel demand."

    Nintendo will instead focus its advertising on the DS, presumably until the Wii is in better supply.

    No, No. You misunderstand! There's nothin WRONG with it. It just than Nintendo can't keep up with the demand and the adds would make it WORSE, and it would seem crappy to advertise something you can't supply!

    Hmm, I'm still seeing those ads in my area fairly regularly. Even if they stopped advertising as of this very second, it's WAY too late in the season for it to have any effect on Christmas demand. I call shenanigans.

    Yeah, at this point, ANyone who wants a Wii already know about it lolz, ANy one who is thinking about getting one knows about it already and has Internet. Anyone who hasn't heard of it sucks lolz. Nintendo knows they can't suppy enough Wiis and many kids will get a picture of a Wii for Christmas lolz. Just like my Moms getting a Picture of her Fireplace and Im getting a Picture of the PSP Slim Daxter Bundle and a Picture of Guitar Hero 3. Just so you know I don't mean picture as you they can't afford it, I mean like a raincheck for reserved copy or money, Its just a term
