GameStop: No “end in sight” for Wii shortages

GameStop CEO Dan DeMatteo has told GameDaily that there are nothing like enough Wiis to go around at the moment, and he thinks it’s a problem that’s going to run into the holidays.

“I’ve never seen this type of demand before. I know they’re making more, but we’re still short like everybody else. I think we’ll have a continued shortage this Christmas,” he said.

He continued, “I don’t see a near-term end in sight for Wii shortages, not unless they really ramp up supply. I think they’ve ramped it up 20 percent or so, but Nintendo is fairly cautious by nature. They ramped it up 20 and it’s still evaporating.”
