The other day, Nintendo Pres., Satoru Iwata stated, 'We must do our best to fix this abnormal lack of stock. We have not been able to properly foresee demand." Now, anecdotal evidence is trickling in that the Wii shortage is easing.
Sure, you may still have problems finding one, but if you let your fingers do the walking and figure out on what day and when stores get shipments, you should be able to secure one.
I'm going to call around to the various stores today in the Portland, Ore. area to see what their stock is like.
