In an interview with the Reuters News Agency at E3, Nintendo of America’s George Harrison has stated that Wii console are likely to be in scarce supply for the second holiday season running. The Wii launched back in November/December with the console selling out within hours. Many retailers are only just beginning to have regular supplies to stock.
“There is no guarantee that we are not going to have ‘out-of-stocks’ this holiday season. If you see one, buy it. Don’t assume that you can come back later and find one” said Harrison.
“We’re trying to figure out what’s the reasonable monthly level, and as we’ve seen every time we ship product to the market, whether it’s in Japan or here in the U.S. or in Europe, it sells out in a matter of days.”
