Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie recently gave word that they will almost certainly be unable to keep up with the Christmas demand for their Wii console.
" What I can tell you is that typically, our inventory is lasting a day... I don't think we will know when supply crosses with demand until after the holiday season."
" The issue is not a lack of production. The issue is we went in with a curve that was aggressive, but the demand has been substantially more than that. And the ability to ramp up production and to sustain it is not a switch that you flick on."
He also gave a statement on Nintendo's view of the success of Halo 3 and its effect on Microsoft.
