    I did a quick search and I didn't find anyone who had referenced this story.

    Wii Shortages Expected at Launch - Wiispace.com

    Personally, I'm not too worried - I'll be camping out at at least one Wal-Mart. What are your thoughts?

    Alot of companies took pre-orders based on speculative allocations, some companies kept taking them knowing they would not be able to fulfill on release. With every launch there are dissapointed people, thats just life. With the Wii there will be less dissapointed people hopefully. One problem is that because the Wii has received a lot of hype more people want it so we all stand slightly less chance of getting one. The store where i have my pre-order informed me that 2 people in front of me in the queue have dropped out and so i am fifth. Woot.

    The American launch quantity is about 1 million, and 4 million is the estimated number of available consoles before christmas worldwide. (i know it's the source not you)

    I'm not worried at all because even when there is a major shoretage it doesn't really affect Norway.

    I had one of those play.com emails, so i did some searching. Argos - Don't shop for it. Argos it! has a very convincing "this product will be delivered on 8th December" notice on there, so i payed the extra fiver for postage, but im almost quarenteed a wii on the day! (argos have their own vans for delivery, and dont use post office) Plus, they said i will get a ten pound voucher through the post, so really i actually saved a fiver!

    Actually I believe the North American launch is 2 million, and I'm quite sure Canada isn't getting a million to themselves.

    Hey chessaholic i just rang up Argos about the wii, i cant put an order in atm but they said that if i put an order in with them they will check the stock they have and if it goes through and they have got stock it will be sent out for launch day. So, i might have to gove them a ring tommorow. Its just bloody annoying that game.co.uk have'ny responded its kinda leaving me in the dark and i dont know if i will be able to get a console from them >_<
