    Is the drought over?

    So, I saw a Wii at Best Buy last week, and this week I saw some at Target. That's the second time I've seen them at Target since I moved to a small town (and the last time, I bought the last one...), and I'm thinking it may be about over.

    Anyone else seeing Wii in stock more often in the US?

    I saw some at the Target near me the other day, about 6 of them I think. But they were gone by the next day when I went back so they might actually be sitting on the shelf longer than 1 hour like that study said a few months ago.
    Doing my part to stimulate the economy...

    Yeah, I have been seeing them at 7PM or so, which is pretty late.

    I think Nintendo will actually reach a brief period where you can mostly just go out and buy one if you want. I doubt they'll drop prices, though, this close to the holiday season; they can't have enough stock to make that work. But we might see a price drop next spring!

    Still as dry as ever around me and demand is still up.

    Why in the world would they even consider a price drop if they are selling out?

    Because I think they're no longer nearly as sold out as they were, and they're probably still increasing production. By the time they're up to a full 2.4M/month, they might actually start to have stock... At which point they might benefit from a price drop, except I think they'll get plenty of boost from the holidays.

    But next year? Next year, I think, they will have sold enough systems that they will no longer be selling out nearly so fast.

    Still hard to find in my area, but I don't look very often. (I want to get one for a family gift.) I heard reports from co-workers that a local Best Buy was stocking them under the counter and you had to ask for it in person, but they were sold out when I got there.

    I'm not sure we'll see a price drop this year but I could see one happening next Spring.
