So, the Wii will be two years old this November.
It is still difficult to find a new, in the box, Wii at the store for the listed price of $249.00.
Many would argue that this is a sign of the quality of the machine and the market demand for it. Others would argue that this is a sign that Nintendo is dropping the ball with the production of the machine.
Which is it?
I tend to think Nintendo is a genius. I find the Wii to be highly overrated, and would recommend to most gamers that they buy a Xbox 360 or even a PS3. By making the Wii hard to get, it has maintained the demand for it. I think if there was a flood of Wii’s to the market, the demand would actually drop and they would sell less. 2009 is not shaping up to be a great year for the Wii(what big games are coming out?).
By keeping the demand high and the supply limited, Nintendo will continue to win.
Am I wrong?
