    They have no since of buisness they think shortages is a good thing, yea that means a lot of people want your system but if you cant meet the demand they go elsewhere. Shortages are indeed a bad thing, microsoft learned this and thats why they increased production on their system and now there is no problems finding an 360. So why nintendo is basking in its glory of being on top for a minute, there are no wii's on store shelves so guess who is going to be getting all the buisness this holiday, yea thats right Microsoft and Sony

    well, i quite frankly could give a rat's ass if there "IS" a shortage, because i already have a wii.

    if there is one ill be worried, because we all know what happens to companies if the cant meet the standards of supply from demand......they fail misserably.......wich means less games....wich means i wasted my money when i bough the console

    What kind of logic is Midway using? The Wii has sold over 13 million in less than one year, catching up with the 360, and it decides not to make games because of shortages? Oh give me a break. Now would be the time to START throwing support, not WITHHOLDING it. Maybe Midway doesn't like money or something. It's almost as bad as people wishing that the Wii would be a fad so they don't have to make Wii games.

    As for the shortage, what's causing it is more about high consumer demand rather than Nintendo itself. I mean, Nintendo just sold 500k Wiis in last month's NPD with frikken Halo 3 out. In Japan, there are no shortages of Wiis actually. Nintendo pledged a couple of million more Wiis the rest of this year.

    PS: Resident Evil 4 Wii is about to sell 1 million. Shortages have nothing to go with demands for games.

    Im not even sure what you guys mean with shortage lol

    When I was in germany even a clothes store with a tiny electronice department ( like 2 shelves ) had a wii there!!

    And in holland almost all the electronic stores got a few in stock. So theres no shortage over here
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    You guys don't read well or don't pay attention well, its not just a shortage in consoles that they are talking about. Nintendo makes the disk the companies put their games on, so if nintendo is having a shortage in that department too then how can game companies get their product out, they can't and that is what midway is talking about.
    and for the guy having wii's in your store well thats because all the production for the wii has been moved for Europe and then to the Release of the wii in china.
    For the comment of a couple million wii's how far do you think that goes in 3 countries?
    Economics people economics, oh and im sorry thats 5 Countries. That my friend is not going to cover the demand for wii's, and thats nice they sold that much but if you look at the sales charts those numbers aren't moving as fast as they were, and the number of people who want wii's are, if you actually look at it the wii has been falling for the last 3 to 4 months, esp in its own native land Japan. Like a previous poster stated Supply and demand plays a major part in a consoles survival.

    Maybe I will start caring about what Midway says when..you know..it actually starts putting games out (I wasn't aware of a single game announced for Wii made by them) This is the first time I have heard about disk shortages. Has EA, Ubisoft, Capcom, Namco, and other publishers actually putting out games said anything about this?

    Sales aren't moving as fast? Are you kidding? This is the case for Japan because of the lack of big titles but the Wii sold over 400k over 3 months in a row, 2 months which were in the summer. July and Sept figures blew everyone away. The Wii was slowing down in the middle of the year but now it's gaining more momentum. Super Mario Galaxy is just around the corner. Capcom, Ubisoft, and EA have been doing well.

    400k from what was it selling, then compare that to what the other consoles have sold for the last 3 months and you will see the we is falling in the system sells. yes other companies have said the same thing as soon as i find those articles i will post that as well.
