Forums - Sales Discussion - About Wii and DS Lite sales in Japan

Short and simple: Are both Wii and DS Lite still sold-out in Japan every week? As I know they both are, and especially Wii is suffering from low supplies because the demand is high like in NA and UK. True or not true?

Yep, the DS and Wii are both selling out in Japan as we speak, and for those two at least it doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon.

Nobody is crazy enough to accuse me of being sane.

The constant flux of the Wii's sales number in Japan(from 80k, down to 60k then back up to 80K again) is a sign that sales are indeed being dictated by supply.

crazy isnt it? Where I live (canada) I can pretty much find a DS at any store. But Its harder to find PS3s thats said to be stocking on store shelves in Japan.

crappy old school NES games are more entertaining than next-gen games.
