Gamer.Blorge: Wii shortages may force consumers to buy PS3 or 360 instead

Gamer.Blorge aka Tech.Blorge reports that "the Nintendo Wii may soon be facing two huge problems: massive hardware shortages, with demand far outstripping supply; and a distinct lack of Triple A titles on the horizon." Gamer.Blorge uses selected quotes from Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime and Jupiter Research analyst Michael Gartenberg to support its prediction.

Gamer.Blorge again reminds readers that "Wii is underpowered compared to it's bigger, bolder rivals; with Nintendo relying on innovation over graphics this time around, but is that an ultimately short lived strategy?"

Gamer.Blorge further alleges that Nintendo could have a widespread problem with the company's "bury your head in the sand" attitude, as (allegedly) demonstrated by Managing Director of Nintendo Australia Rose Lappin's choice to "stay quiet about these issues, refusing to return journalists calls." [Notes: This allegation is unverified.]

Socomnick just told a story of what happened to his cousin last Christmas. How can people disagree with what he said? It wasn't an opinion. Oh wait, I get it. You're mad because his cousin wanted a 360 instead of a PS3, so you disagreed with him. Babies.

@Angry

If you mention the words PS3 or 360 its a 50/50 chance you will get a disagree.

You mention the Wii however and you start losing bubbles.

Hey, if they like glossy shooters, wait for Haze and tell 'em they just misspelled the name.

there is little chance that they will come back for it, unless it;s a novelty item. adults are busy, and a game box, is a game box. they dont care which one they prefer, because they still can play games on it. and if they cant have it now, they might never have nothing at all

I never thought that was possible...Nintendo is a victim of its own success?
