At first, we're sure that the countless reports of a Wii shortage throughout the media were music to Nintendo's ears. In fact, we even heard some theorize that Nintendo was holding back on supply to help drive up demand. These days, though, it's just gotten silly. People want to buy the thing, and Nintendo seems to be doing all they can to keep up with demand. In fact, Nintendo of America's outgoing marketing boss George Harrison recently said that the company is making 1.8 million of the systems every month.
The amazing thing? That's still not enough. If Nintendo really wants to maximize their profits this holiday season, we'd like to humbly recommend that the company invest in GameCube and duct tape factories. Oh yeah, we went there.
