Wii stock likely to be low this Xmas

It may be the middle of Summer and here in the UK we are finally enjoying a hot day in the office but Nintendo are already looking ahead to the festive period.

This December shockingly will be the third Christmas the Wii has been avaliable to buy and already Satoru Iwata, the president and CEO for Nintendo is warning that stock levels may be low as in previous years.

“We are really intending to increase the shipments to the US, especially compared to last year,” Iwata recently remarked to Forbes. “However, I can’t give you a 100 percent commitment [that you’ll be able to find a Wii this holiday season]. What I can commit myself to is that Nintendo is going to do its best to supply as many Wii hardware units as possible in order to meet demand there.“

Basically, go out and buy a Wii now while you can otherwise you might find your children aren’t best pleased Christmas morning and you’ll be subjected to more abuse from the little ones. Or your other half.
