    I think this is in the how to get a Wii thread too, anyways:
    My guess is that the retailer is planning to list the Wii in their black friday/day after Thanksgiving print ads. By law the store has to have all advertised items in stock (and with a reasonable quantity I think) in order to advertise them. Given the craziness of people punching each other out for stuff on black friday ("oooo, a cheap crappy scanner for free at 5am only!"), it would be wise for retailers to 'stock up' on super high demand items.

    Kinda sucks though, you would think they could have a percentage of the Wii inventory for sale until black friday and the rest for black friday only.

    I hope there is not a Wiicall... The last thing I want to do is send my console back to Nintendo and have to wait 6 months for supply to catch up to demand.

    The retailers are doing that in order to have enough stock for "Black Friday", which just happens to be 11/23 this year. I'm not surprised in the least that retailers are holding stock for the next fews weeks, so they can capitilize on selling Wiis on the largest shopping day of the year.

    Its a good strategy, especially with the holiday season comming up...dang, just think, they hold back Wii's for a month, and as the holiday shopping season gets into high gear right around thanksgiving, they flood the stores with tons of Wii's, so everyone anticipating one will get it. Great strategy.

    [QUOTE=Skippy][QUOTE=Brawny]Ugh..... It is not...... most likely related to the artificial hype nintendo is putting on the Wii.

    If a store is holding back inventory, then that would be something the store is doing, not Nintendo. Nintendo is not preventing anyone from selling Wiis before then.
    well i used to work at wal mart and i dont know if nintendo is doing this but i know that if a company says dont sell this until a certain date then you cant sell. If you do sale it cost your store a $10,000 fine so nintendo could be doing this there is not rule saying they cant.
