"LOS ANGELES - Not every parent whose child wants a Nintendo Wii this holiday season will be able to get their hands on one. Instead of Tickle Me Elmo, this year parents will stalk the aisles of retailers and surf the Web in hot pursuit of the tiny, white "waggle box." The $250 kid-friendly console has already been on the market for a year, and more than 13 million are already in the hands of gamers."

The story is too old to be commented.

This is standard Nintendo practice. I remember when the SNES came out they purposely under-shipped to induce hype and demand. They are up to their old tricks, but holy hell is it working!
