Even at $600 the Wii is a must-have gift this season

Yi-Wyn Yen of Fortune.cnn.com writes, "If you can't track down a Nintendo Wii this holiday season, you're not alone. Nintendo has not been able to keep up with the demand for its mega-hit console. Now thousands of desperate consumers who can't find the Wii on store shelves have turned to web outlets like Amazon (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY), where they're paying a premium to get one."

"We're seeing an unprecedented demand for a console," says Billy Pidgeon, a gaming analyst with IDC Research. "This is the killer gift this season. And if you're lucky enough to get a Wii with Guitar Hero III, that would be the ultimate."

I wonder how much Nintendo paid for that ad? Even at $600 the Wii is a must-have? Too much. It isn't worth $99 even. What a joke.

You do realize you're in a wii article? I believe you meant to post that in a PS3 article and tell people about how it is collecting dust.

Icewake, he was talking about his Wii. This is the right place for it. If I had a Wii, you better be damn sure I would sell it in a heartbeat. $600 is way more than the Wii is worth.

Go play your console wars somewhere else. I'm sick of you childish fankids.

Yea I've read something like this before. I guess being cheap isn't why people buy it but because people actually want the buy the Wii.

beavis4play3431d ago

the wii isn't a complicated piece of hardware to make-so is nintendo just holding back supply to drive up demand?

"Some ppl actually use consoles to play games, not movies."

That's why I bought a PS3. It has lots of great games. Unlike the Wii that has two or three.
