I understand the shortage of the console itself. That is a lot of making going on, and they are doing a good job of getting them out.
But the controllers? Come on! For a system that is so multi-player friendly (and in my opinion, focused) they should have more controllers available. The pack-in game, Wii Sports, is fun for 10 minutes by yourself. Sure, some of the games you can pass the Wiimote back and forth. But, in all of their promotions and TV spots, you see a family, or a group of friends having a blast. All of them have their own Wiimote. And most games, each person needs their own anyway.
I was #18 in line the day it was released. The store have 22 Wiis available. The store I was at was completely sold out of controllers by the time person #4 was able to buy their Wii.
I have gone store to store is search of just 1 Wiimote. Nope. I just called a Game Stop that is receiving a shipment today. They said they didn't know if any were in that shipment. What they did know was that people were hanging around in the store just waiting for the shipment to arrive in hopes of being able to nab some accessories for the thing. Another store I called said they got Wiis today, but no controllers came in.
Is it just me, or is there something wrong with this picture?
