Analysts: Wii Drought to Cost Nintendo $1 bln

It's no secret that Nintendo is failing to adequately stock retail channels with enough Wii units despite pumping out 1.8 million systems on a monthly basis. (Industry)

I really hate analysts.

None of them seem to understand that Nintendo is working at capacity to make Wiis. You can't just "make more" and Nintendo is not losing any money. Because as we all know, the Wii and the DS print money.

I'm not the first

What tickles me more is people paying $500-600 for this console on ebay.....

Incorrect Abbreviation
Bln is in no way shape or form the abbreviation for "billion"

The correct abbreviation is the letter "B"

That's it.

Grammar Nazi out!
