    Yeah... Like once March rolls around, and Nintendo is given a chance to catch up with demand. Have you even read the analyst reviews? Sony's PS3 will be in excruciatingly short supply at only 400,000 units, and Nintendo's Wii won't be able to keep up with demand at 4,000,000 units. Meanwhile, Microsoft's X-Box 360 will be sitting in plentiful supply at around 4,000,000 units.

    A few weeks ago (maybe before yet another eBay purge), Wii was above a grand while PS3 topped two grand. In either case, industrial analysts, Nintendo, and critics (alike) have said that the Wii simply will not be able to keep up with demand, despite Nintendo's production facilities and supply chains being, pretty well, maximized to potential output. Unless you managed to find a pre-order at GameStop/EBGames, Amazon.com, or Toys'R'Us, most retailers are telling you that it might be best to check the line outside the store at 2am and either a) celebrate if fewer than twenty people are waiting or b) give up and go home if more than twenty people are waiting. That's on the Wii, alone! PS3 is more like ten instead of twenty (likely more like four actually).

    In any case, I founds this news article worth posting as simple...proof of the potential the Wii has.
