GameStop Exec Says Wii Shortage Is Over For Now
For those who actually haven't been pulling their hair out for the past 2.5 years, consider yourself lucky. Everyone else has been waltzing into store after store, only to find the Wii section completely blank while the Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s were piled up over to the side. Mr. McKenzie has been quoted as saying that nearly three years after the Wii's debut, it "finally has enough inventory on the shelf, and it has a couple of weeks in supply."
Of course, we don't exactly foresee this staying true for too awfully long, particularly when October - November rolls around. So yes, if you're planning on finally getting your kid that Wii for Christmas in December of 2009, you might want to consider buying one now and storing it at a friends house. If you choose to wait, don't say we didn't warn you.
