The question: why is the Wii, which was famously scarce before Christmas this year, still so hard to buy?
I don't think it does.
Mainly, because when someone wants a Wii they are going to find one in the next few weeks after initially looking.
During this timeframe the customer usually picks up games and accessories.
Why does this happen? Well it's because when the places actually do get the Wii in-stock customers end up buying out all the Wiimotes, nunchucks and certain games.
Usually with a shipment of Wii's around 20-30 units we end up going through 3 cases of Wiimotes and 3 cases of nunchucks and 1 case of Classics.
