Wii production expansion delayed

Ross Miller

You know that Wii shortage you were certain Nintendo would alleviate by now? We hate to inform you that plans to expand production on the console has been delayed due to their constrained supply of specific components, according to a report by Digitimes.

Though the goal was originally to have production ramped up starting this past June, the Taiwan component makers now expect the shortage woes to last through the end of the year. With Smash Bros. and Mario Galaxy almost guaranteed to move units this holiday season, it'll be such a tease (not to mention detrimental to Nintendo's bottom line) if the Wii is still, after over a year, impossible to find in stores.
