    I'm not saying your a dumb shit, but I think you are wrong about this huge conspiracy and fake shortages - if only for the reason that why would Nintendo benefit more from selling Wii's or DS's AFTER Christmas rather than before?

    The Christmas selling period is one that has always held more kudos, and the shortage of Wiis (and the price hikes of the ones that are available) mean that right now in the UK it's cheaper (yes cheaper!) to buy a PS3 than it is a Wii from real "bricks and mortar" shops.

    This isn't a good thing for Nintendo, so why would they create a false shortage? It doesn't make sense.

    The Wii is in short supply because they are are so damn fun, every family wants one. There physically aren't enough of them to go round.

    I feel sorry for those that have to plump for a PS3.... the shame!

    Well the article is a well written one, with no more than professional speculation about business practices..

    Basically Nintendo is a very conservative company, that in combination with current consumerism business practices (that also err on the side of too little stock) have led to not enough Wii's.

    Far from a conspiracy, but more than likely a completely believable explanation to the shortages.

    Who cares? If it is a conspiracy than it is. What does it matter. What is the difference between conspiracy and a good sales trick. Let's focus on the fact that Nintendo's smarter then Sony and Microsoft. Let's turn this into love for the wii ^^

    Take an economics class, demand will almost always be higher than quantity in this case because nintendo doesn't outsource it's production. I repeat: NINTENDO DOES NOT OUTSOURCE IT'S PRODUCTION. Do you understand that it puts a serious cramp in quantitiy unlike Microsoft and Sony who are much bigger entities that can handle production throughout the year and not just Christmas. I didn't need to get that from Wall Street. Also, you have to take into account, it's not Nintendo's fault that too many people are waiting in line to buy their Wiis only to turn around and sell them on ebay to turn $250 into $500. Whatever, I guess I am just a fanboy and you're probably not even going to read this.

    Why so much hate against Nintendo? They're doing what's best for their bottom line - intended shortage or not.

    It makes no sense to constantly whine over who is winning the console war and whether or not it is due to some "conspiracy". Get over yourself, it is what it is. Pick a console and shut up. Be happy with the console(s) you have, be it a Wii, PS3, XBox, or whatever.

    ETA: For what it's worth, I don't think it's a conspiracy.

    So, I've been over this before.

    Nintendo is making 1.8 Million units a month now.
    To compare, Sony is producing roughly 300,000 PS3's a month.

    So why is the Wii hard to find? It's selling 350-400 thousand units A WEEK.
    Demand for the Wii is significantly higher than other units.

    Yes, gamers want a Wii, and a PS3, and a 360.
    But Grandma Also wants a Wii
    And the Gym coach wants ten of them.
    And, for that matter, so does a huge portion of the population who never wanted to play video games before.

    People, particularly Wall Street analysts, don't seem to understand how far outside the normal target market Nintendo has stretched with the Wii.

    Yungblood,
    Quite frankly, I don't trust your opinion on anything to do with Wii.

    The post's of your's I have read have always been anti-Wii, or reason the 360 is better, or why Nintendo will lose the console war.

    Yeah. "Unbiased".
    GAME OVER
