Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash bros brawl shortages in Japan.

Only thing we can hope for is that the 300,000-400,000 copies that was given in this article was the number BEFORE Ninty decided to push the date back a week and print more.

nintendo probably got tired of printing money.



the Wii is an epidemic.

Probably scared that it will be a repeat of galaxy with slow sales at first, remeber, Nintendo hates to be burned



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

If anyone can read Japanese, there is an update on http://www.lepton.ne.jp/ about the Smash Bros shortage.

 No everyone who wanted it will still buy, Nitnendo is more concerned about not losing money

As much as I want to defend Nintendo, they really should be doing better.

Well now am I ever glad I pre-ordered Brawl in June or earlier of 2006!  I foresaw shortages way back in the day and checked every week to make sure I was one of the first to pre-order it. I know I must be within the first 10 to pre-order from my local EBGames!

That should guarantee me a copy launch day regardless of Nintendo's lack of manufacturing capabilities. I mean Nintendo has performed poorly as far as providing software and hardware to the masses, but I expected that. Since day one I have pre-ordered any game that I planned to own within a month of launch.

I camped out for my Wii and would expect everyone else to do the same if they haven't pre-ordered their copies yet. Go to a retailer that doesn't take pre-orders and camp out!

 

Fact is who is dumb enough not to have pre-ordered by now?
