Wii Shortage Finally Coming To An End

Article from the Dallas news showing how the Wii's supply problems will change.

"OK, one last stab at explaining the Wii shortage.

I was talking to a game-industry analyst this week about how retailer GameStop (which is based in Grapevine) will fare if there is a recession or economic slowdown.

During the course of the interview, the analyst, Michael Pachter at Wedbush Morgan, said the real culprit for the Wii shortage in the U.S. is the weak dollar.

I know this is getting rather dense for a game column, but bear with me."

hmmm wonder if it applies to 360 supply shortage as well. Could also explain why UK got a price drop first. Msoft could be trying to sell more in the UK to maximize profit.

The difference being that it is actually hard to find Wii's, whereas I've never heard of someone having trouble finding a 360.

My point being there are no supply issues in UK or JP only in US. Maybe msoft is trying to sell more in the UK than they are in the US because UK will bring them more profit. So they are allocating most of their stock to the UK.

I think that is a pretty valid explanation

I think you're trying to say, is that M$ is trying to shipped all of it stock in US over to Europe and JP to be able to maximize profit because US currency are currently falling and the reason of that US are having supply issue

same here we have alot of ps3s in the back in our gamestop
a few xbox360 elites also which surprises me since they havent been sold for a while

I have one.

Anyone want it? I have Brawl, but that got boring REALLY REALLY quick.

We can't keep them in stock for more than a half an hour at my Gamestop. Also, we have a bunch of PS3's lying in the back. It sucks to live here because there are about 10,000 xbox fanboys that wear pink polo's with popped collars and all they do is play Madden, Halo, and Guitar Hero all day...
