Nintendo Guarantees Availability of Wii at Gamestop . . . After Christmas

In what is becoming a famous example of arriving late to their own party year after year, Nintendo came out this week and promised that they would answer the supply shortage of Wii units by providing a guarantee that the units would be available at Gamestop stores across the US  .. . after the holidays.

That is bad news for retailers like Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Circuit City that would rather sell Wii units this month while their customers still have a Christmas budget. 

Well Santa can't really waste time crying over spilt cookie milk, I guess the kids will just have to be happy with bulk cables in their stockings, which they can return and buy a Wii at Gamestop after Christmas.
