Someone is a month behind in their jokes.
Every year, the Wii has huge shortages in January, they usually ran out of consoles in December. Nothing surprising except the huge amount that was in stock to begin with.
except in the previous years there were shortages leading up into November/December. This year there were no shortages from around March on. Had Nintendo not cut their production this year there wouldn't be any shortages (well, unless they managed to sell another 1-2m in December)
