Billy Pidgeon has come unstuck in time. The IDC analyst has told Home Media Magazine, "I believe the Wii will continue strong growth although supply continues to be a problem ... I don't believe supply will meet demand for the Wii until 2009." For a time traveling analyst, these dates far into the future may seem trivial but for those of us stuck in time, 2009 represents a new epoch, a limitless new technological age marked by an uncommon proliferation of flying cars, talking pets, and a curious lack of waggle-enabled game consoles.
The remainder of the article recaps the March NPD numbers ( ... was that last week ago already? We're spastic in time), but Pidgeon's comments stand out like the words of a weary man who's been to the future and knows the secrets it holds. So, can Nintendo possibly fail to meet Wii demand for another 20 months, Sunday's shipment be damned?
