From the talk I see on thsi forum, the lack of stock in the UK shops and the articles I read about shortages in the USA and Japan it sounds like the Wii has been a absolute hit this christmas. Did you expect it to be this big? I admit I didnt. I thought it would be popular but not like this. Why do people think ist been such a big hit? They didnt advertise that heavily pre launch, although they seem to be putting lots of ads on TV now but you cant buy one!! I dont even think nintendo have fullfilled every pre order that shops have taken. Basically they have a 100% sell through ratio, every bit of stock is getting sold. Thats pretty impressive. I really didnt expect the wii to do this well so fast. Could the wii over take the 360 globally and be number 2? I always ecpected it to be a strong 3rd place but the way its selling I see it being a strong 2nd.
