Nintendo Says It Will Boost Wii Production

I still get a few e-mails a week from readers who are still desperately seeking a Wii. "Where can I get one," they ask. "I've been looking all over!" The craze seems to have died down in San Francisco, most shops get weekly shippings and so long as you call in advance, there is usually a supply. Such is not the case, however, throughout the whole US and clearly, there are many people still wishing and hoping they will get their hands on a Wii soon.

The good news is, Nintendo's president has announced the shortage of the hit Wii game machine was "abnormal," and promised production was being boosted to increase deliveries by next month.

"We must do our best to fix this abnormal lack of stock," Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told the Associated Press. "We have not been able to properly foresee demand."

it took me FOREVER to find my Wii. Actually, I ended up just giving up and going to Gamestop to see if I could get a cheap game for my PS2. Out of curiosity I asked if they had Wii's and they had 3! I was so excited :]

I'm happy to see how crazy in demand it is. Even though I feel sorry for people who can't get one I love to see it's still selling out.

I finally got one last week, and let me tell you, it was totally worth waiting for. I've never had so much fun playing a game console.

We FINALLY got our Wii 2 weeks ago! We managed to get the last one at a Target here in Philly. And man, it was sooo worth it. :) Good luck ladies!
