NoA boss Reggie Fils-Aime’s told MSNBC that he’s not expecting any Wii or DS hardware shortages running into the end of 2009.

“From our stand-point, we’re prepared,” he said when asked if punters can expect to go begging this Christmas.

“We have a tremendous amount of product in inventory. We’re been flowing product into retail. We do not expect to have shortages on our products.”

Quick. Buy three Wiis. Who knows when they’ll run out again?
