Wii shortages: Analysts unconcerned

Commentators agree that shortages won't affect Nintendo's market position this year

That Nintendo may have trouble meeting hardware demand this Christmas is something that the company has publicly admitted, but in the eyes of analysts this won't deal too much damage to the Wii's dominant market position.

That's according to Screen Digest's Ed Barton and The simExchange's Jesse Divnich, who both spoke to GamesIndustry.biz on the subject.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm sorry but I'm not buying this Wii shortage bullshot. It's been almost a year and it's not like the Wii is a complex machine. There is no shortage whatsoever of components for a console of the Wii's caliber. This is nothing more than Nintendo's holiday marketing strategy.

Explain why accelerometers and the hardware required to process those signals couldn't possibly be the reason for the shortage. It's not like those parts have ever been in high demand before the Wii.
