The Wii is becoming to Japan what Starcraft is in Korea. You know, something that will eventually slow down in sales because everyone got 2 for themselves and one for their dog.

Seriously, the Wii's numbers are just...insane. It's too bad Nintendo can't get the parts the need to increase production. I wonder if that means all the little companies that make the pieces that go into the Wii can't keep up with demand, either.

I think the holidays will be interesting just for the Wii. Shortages, still, almost a year later...we'll see the Wii sold out though December, when sales really pick up, but Nintendo not able to make as much as people want.

one week, it's "360 on top," then it's "PS3 pwns," then back to "Wii #1"
