    VERY upset about supply of controllers

    Ok my Wii Friends, I accept the back order on systems, It is a given. I got mine I am fine. However I have 3 friends coming over tonight to check out the Wii and I own 1 controller. There has been NO CONTROLLERS available online or in my area since day one. When I got my system they were gone. Nintendo should have made 4 times as many nunchucks and remotes then system. Not only would they have sold by now or at least they would be available. I can go buy any game right now, why cant I buy a freaking controller. AT LEAST ONE. This is such BS. I remember for 360 controllers were there. I am so pissed right now.

    The same reason why they didn't make enough Wii's. You've answered your own question in your post. It takes time to manufacture these items - software is quicker to produce in relation to hardware.

    dude, quit complaining so much. I don't know where you live, but at my walmart, I was 16th in line for the wii and they still had 8 ea. of the nunchuk and wii remote when I stepped up to check out. If you are having such a problem, go buy some on ebay for 50 billion dollars.

    Then just go to Bestbuy tomorrow really early. They're getting a shipment and they advertised all the Wii stuff in the flyers for Sunday, including the system.

    I picked up my extra pair on launch day because I knew it'd be harder to find days after. I'm still looking for another, though. I'd like to have all four by Christmas.

    its funny, cuz usually when you say stop complaining, you follow it up with a statement about how you have it worse, so the person shouldnt be complaining about themselves..
    althought, you have written, stop complaining cuz i can get controllers whenever i want..

    its kinda funny
