Wii still hard to find - video
A year after the release of Tickle-Me Elmo or Furby, demand dropped and the patient(or unlucky the first time around) were rewarded with shelves stocked with the toys that had brought shoppers to blows. This isn't the case with the Nintendo Wii.
A full year after its release, the popular gaming system will still be missing from under many Christmas trees this year, as production still is unable to meet with demand.
Why? Promotions like this one show how the system can be fun and beneficial for people all ages have made the Wii desirable to demographics who never before had an interest in electronic gaming.
