Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime is promising a Wii inventory stream of Flomax proportions this winter to coincide with the holiday season. With every analyst and industry watcher predicting that this holiday will be a megaton event for the entire video games industry in terms of sales, I hope he’s right.
System sellers like Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Mario Galaxy are sure to strain that supply chain, and even Reggie is telling people to key an eye on the shelves to snatch up Wii’s when they see them. Add on top of that the fact that WiiFit currently has a Jan 2 listing (and a new $99 price point!), and the situation could reach Disaster Day of Crisis proportions (no, I don’t mean that it will be non-existent, I mean things could get very riot-like).
