"The Wii has had an incredible run for the last two years, selling to all and sundry and making Nintendo a boatload of money. In that two year period, demand has always outstripped supply, with new stocks of the little white console disappearing as soon as they hit store shelves. Could that trend now be ending?
The almost unbelievable success of the Wii over the past couple of years has surprised most people, me included. Here is a console that is stuck in the last-gen in every way apart from its innovative control system. But that's all it's needed. People of all ages have wanted to buy into the dream of actually playing video games, using body and hand movements rather than the quite unnatural rigmarole associated with using a controller and learning what each button does."
