Wii was not having shortages in the middle of 2009. The reason Q1 had a low shipment number is because Nintendo over-shipped in the previous quarter: They went from 5.43M in Q4 FY 2008 to 2.23M in Q1 FY 2009.
Gotcha, my bad then. For me I remembered Wii being supply constrained almost up to its 4th year.
