Whoa Avinash, clearly you let your personal feelings towards the Wii affect your common sense. I highly doubt that the Wii could sell that much per month, for more than maybe 3-4 months MAX, because after that the extremely high demand would be quenched. It just doesn't seem feasible, and unless you can prove us wrong, since all this is based only on opinion, and analysts tend to be the worst at what they do, this proves nothing. Just another What If? The only time I haven't been able to walk into a store and buy a Wii is this past month and a half, and I live in California. The Wii hasn't been completely selling out all year, but it has been coming very close. Not Wii bashing, so don't jump on me and assume I think it is a fad and what not because my opinion differs from yours, OK?!?1 I plan on getting a Wii next year when it has a few more games I am interested in.
Yeah, so in your part of california it doesn't sellout and you assume thatdemand is quenched, let me let you in on a little secret, they can't teleport Wii's my friend, just because your store has Wii's doesn't mean that demand everywhere is quenched, it would be great if Wii supply could be shifted via teleporter, but it doesn't work that way, and a person in NY isn't going to fly out to your town to buy a Wii, your sotre having Wii's while others are sold out is a mistake on the part of the retailer, underestimating demand in one store and overestimating in another, it has no bearing on demand being quenched at any one moment.
I'm certain if you went to every store in this country you would find Wiis in some areas, but that doesn't matter if people are in other areas who want it but its not in supply there
