Default Why Can't I Find A Nintendo Wii?

Looking back on the past month or so, I've been searching endlessly for a Nintendo Wii. Why can't I find one? I'm not resorting to buying off eBay or anything to that extent. It really doesn't make a ton of sense to me. Yes, I understand there's high demand for them right now, but Nintendo should be producing enough units to keep shelves consistently full.

If you want my honest opinion, this is a strategic marketing tactic courtesy of Nintendo. They're basically keeping their "next-gen" buzz strong in the gaming community, because everyone (gamers, media, internet) is saying the same thing I am "why can't I get a Wii?" month after month now. I could go out today and buy an unlimited supply of Sony's PS3.

Anyone else feel my pain?



This is Wii-tarded.

Last night I found one at BestBuy. My girl and I played it for about 3-4 hours last night.

I'll give more info later once I've had a chance to access things.
