find me GH3 for Wii




and a side note: If any of you parents bought it for your kid and they've been acting up lately, here's a perfect opportunity for tough love. Sell me the game and buy yourself a christmas present.

Actually the manufacturers making the Wii have been working at full capacity. This is actually a sell out product. I would say nintendo approved more manufacturers to build this product for the christmas rush. Last report i read (3 days ago) said that the components on the PCBA's are the limiting factor.

do you honestly think it's marketing on nintendo's part? Considering the Wii is soldout year round...It wouldn't be beneficial to sell more only at christmas. It's not a collectors item, or limited qty product.

They've been holding back their inventory since mid summer, and that's when we first saw our shipments slow.

Menufacturers don't do that...they wouldn't stop themselves from making money in an earlier quarter just to have good christmas sales. They would ramp production if anything.

Look at all the big brain marketing gurus in here. If you consider that the lost sales due to supply problems have been claimed as high as a billion dollars by some, why the fuck would this be a marketing trick? The Wii has been sold out since launch last year. Analysts believe that they could be selling about twice the 1.8 million consoles a month they are currently producing.

I knew my roommate and I would both fail the rest of the semester so I waited until after finals were over and hit up every store in the area and they were all sold out. I think I waited too long and all the christmas shoppers grabbed em up. I'll pick it up after the holidays.

people want what they cant have..half the people buying these damn things ASSUME their kids want them just because they're impossible to get and hte other half are a-holes like me who bought them to sell on ebay to the first half. Almost anyone you talk to prefers to play the xbox360 or ps3..only really little kids prefer the wii because its easier and half their games are for people with no brains or under the age of 7. If nintendo wanted to they could have fixed the problem after the first sell out season (last xmas)..but now they have the most wanted system instead of the most available had they bumped production. Despite what some of you tards say this system has not been sold out year round..just the last 2 months. Look at how many people on ebay had stacks of 30+ I can give you a guess as to when they bought them all...The only reason they even sold out in late oct/early nov was because of people buying loads of htem to sell during xmas because they knew people would get stupid over them. Reminds you of the tickle me elmos/furbys parents will go to any length to get what they think is the hottest gift especially if half the other kids wont be able to get it

they have bumped production from 1 million units a month to 1.8. All of your anecdotal rambling is interesting and all but I'll stick to the facts. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/14/te...in&oref=slogin

Try reading your own article you fucking git

"Industry analysts suspect that Nintendo is intentionally keeping the supply low to maintain a buzz. If so, they say, the company risks permanently losing customers, because gift givers might not buy a machine in the new year.

“Nintendo is afraid that if it makes too many Wii, the boom may crest too quickly,” said Masayuki Otani, an analyst at Maruwa Securities in Tokyo. “It doesn’t want to satisfy all demand right away.”

And look..that last one is even from right in tokyo where they are made..imagine that..im not just some conspiracy thinking prick!
