    It could be a few or many factors, it's hard to know for sure unless you're inside . It's all about risk and $$$. If you ramp up production as a reaction to demand without proper planning, you're more likely to run into quality control issues. Plus we can only speculate what the timeline is from the decision to ramp up production to Wiis arriving at the retailers...1 month? 6 months? Nearly every electronic device has components coming in from multiple suppliers. Manufacturer A can only supply a fixed # of part 1, how much of a risk is it to go to a new manufacturer to get part 1? If we increase production X%, will demand produce enough of a profit for Y quarters to generate a substantial profit?

    No problem.



    Very good explanation gnahc79, also there is the question that will arise that will they change the price, and if so, by what, and when?

    No one has any clue. It depends on:

    - Competition: Will price drops for the 360 and PS3 steal market share? IMO it's unlikely since the target audience for the Wii is more broad. I really can't see grandpa going nuts with COD4 .
    - Current Wii Supply: When will the Wii be at normal inventory levels at retailers? We can only speculate.
    - Next gen Nintendo console: When will Nintendo's next gen console be ready? When do they want it to be ready? I would think that once Nintendo has a firm timeline for the next console AND they've recouped all of the Wii R&D costs (probably already have by now), then they can plan a price drop for the Wii. IMO this won't be for a long time.

    I'm not a business/financial expert by any means, so feel free blast away and poke holes, lol.

    And people still doubt Nintendo intentionally witholding production in order to create an artificial demand crisis with the intention of increasing hype?

    I thought their marketing scheme was fairly transparent from the start, but I guess not everyone catches on at the same rate...

    Small supply increase for the Christmas season is my guess. All manufacturers do that though to brace themselves so that they don't run out of stock (thus taking advantage of this huge consumer month).

    Hey, I'll jump on if you can point to an insider leaked memo or official Nintendo press release confirming your speculation. You feel there's a conspiracy to intentionally withhold inventory. Hey, go for it. IMO that's very unlikely given that Nintendo took a substantial risk by releasing a console that has inferior hardware and betting on a relatively innovative control scheme instead. You choose to disagree and that's fine.
