No increase in Wii production until April

Nintendo has ruled out increasing Wii production until April at the earliest.

Jinyou Mori, Senior Managing Director of Nintendo of Japan said that the company intends to maintain monthly production rates at their current levels for the rest of the financial year, which runs until 31 March 2008.

At present, Nintendo is manufacturing 1.8 million Wii consoles a month. Although this has been just about enough to keep up with demand during quiet times, it's has left Nintendo unable to supply enough consoles during periods of peak demand.

The story is too old to be commented.

I am really curious to see hom much they will up production and see if that will finally be enough to meet demand with a little surplus on top so it is not constantly sold out. We could finaly see what kind of weekly sales the Wii is really capable. Should be interesting.

oh well.... 1.8 million is still enough to beat x360 and ps3 combine most months.. but cant wait to see the more sells in april

They'll up it to 1.9 million? Let's hope they do it right and make as much as possible and stop pretending "OH we didn't know it would still be selling this much still"
