Nintendo’s president acknowledged that it didn’t accurately predict the demand for the Wii and is now prepared to ramp up production. Starting next month, Nintendo will increase production of the Wii, though the company didn’t say exactly how many more units per month it will produce. Fair enough, since any increase at all is good news for lots of you out there, my family included. (Wii’s scarcity destroyed my little brother’s Christmas and birthday, which is three months later in March.)
I guess there’s more casual gamers out there than Nintendo anticipated, which must have totally ruined its calculus. So when can we declare Wii the winner of this war?
