wow theres alot of craziness going on here. Why would we suggest that the company is purposely not making enough? That makes no sense. Ive seen Wii plenty of times at walmart & a guy I work with just bought one
Its not the end of the world

I think it's the corporate hype machine. Everything I see points to Xbox having a great Christmas and PS3 tanking it. For the rumor of Wii being unavailable it might be based on this:

A year after the system's launch, finding a Wii is nearly impossible, and it is just about guaranteed that everyone who is planning on purchasing one as an Xmas gift will be disappointed.

"We're working very hard to make sure that consumers are satisfied this holiday, but I can't guarantee that we're going to meet demand," Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime, told the Mercury News in a recent interview. "As a matter of fact, I can tell you on the record that we won't."

According to Fils-Aime, they are not even sure how many units should be put into the marketplace.

"We have been sold out worldwide since we launched ... Every time we put more into the marketplace, we sell more, which says that we are not even close to understanding where the threshold is between supply and demand," claimed Fils-Aime.
