Analysts estimate that Nintendo is missing out on $1 to $1.3 billion in sales this Holiday season because they cannot satisify demand for the Wii console.

The demand never stopped outpacing Wii availablity over the past year. It looks like Nintendo did not see or did not want to see the size of the demand.
Nintendo sold 981,000 Wii consoles in the United States in November, which marks the best month as of yet.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
