    Nintendo just wanted to get as many consoles in the shops as quickly as possible, without really thinking that people might want more controllers.

    You'd think they might gauge demand before they give a release date but noooo.

    I don't think they did. Especially in the UK after we were told that the PS3 had been delayed until March 2007. Nintendo would have thought "Yay, bumper Christmas sales. Except no, cause we can only ship a few thousand before Christmas."

    I was at walmart today and they had a ton of all the other accessories & games but not any wiimotes. I should have pre-ordered another two wiimotes at ebgames to go with my Wii.

    I agree with the OP. It's kinda ridiculous. Gamestop had 6 Wii's on Friday but only TWO nunchucks and no wiimotes.. what kind of crap is that? They couldn't at least send a few wiimotes?

    What I find crazy is that there are always a bunch of Wiimotes but never any nunchuks. I did see one classic controller today though.

    My area has tons of controllers at every store that sells wii stuff.

    So don't bitch and moan and blame it on nintendo that your area whored up the wiimotes.
