If this is true, then they must have JUST started popping those babies out of the manufacturing plant. Meaning that they really did JUST complete the game. I sure hope that it's all done right.
They've delayed the game HOW many times and they don't have enough discs? I was skeptical with the Wii shortages, but this I'm calling complete BS. I remember the "low chip supply" tactic they used when they released Zelda II: The Adventures of Link. Same old Nintendo, someone needs to call them on this manufactured demand.
I'm with you on that one..its getting a bit tried and tested. Making software and making hardware are two different things. Software shortages last days...and it's not like Nintendo can be surprised anymore with 'how overwhelming the demand has been'.
What the hell is wrong with Nintendo? It's one thing to have a shortage of the systems, but to have a shortage of a first party game (that they knew will sell off the shelves) is pure B.S. I had put a downpayment on the game last week at Gamestop and they told me I'm lucky because they were soon going to stop taking preorders. I just hope that Nintendo don't screw me on this one considering they delayed the game already and I just repurchased the system just for this game. Well only time will tell but I feel they think we are so stupid that they couldn't burn enough of these games in time.
Haha, there will be blood, Nintendo wins another battle against humanity.
This is Nintendo's flagship online game....you have to wonder if this was done to ease the pressure of 1 Million people trying to log on to WFC and fix bugs faster.
i see why the big n waiting to march 9.. so they can up supply on both wii and smash bros. cause demand will run through the roof
i guess alot of people have no idea how business works... hardware and software are the same things.. they both need to be produce... with shortages on wii hardware , wii fit, ...nintendo just are in a tough situation trying to correct three problems....plus the game just got completed... so its very true thats the problem that they are having... by march all that should be well once they bring up productions base on results.. in either case nintendo is having a problem that sony and microsoft wish they were having
I am not surprised. If somebody could destroy Nintendo, it is Nintendo itself
Global warming Avian flu Terrorism Economic collapse Smash Shortages... EVERYBODY PANIC
