Well, they went down in March and are now back at Jan/Feb levels. That hole in March could be systems diverted to Europe (as ioi's new graph doesn't include Europe yet), or the higher Jan/Feb level could have been some overflow from the 800k extra systems that Reggie had ordered for Christmas but mysteriously never arrived in America. I still wonder what actually happened back then, but we'll never know.

I don't think Sony and MS have anything at hand to attract people looking for a Wii, do they? Nintendo will just lose some 10k sales every week from people who really want it but are finally tired of waiting or people who don't even knew they might ever want one but might have bought one by chance if it had been in stock.

Hardcore gaming is a bubble economy blown up by Microsoft's $7 $6 billion losses.
