Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime says that on average the Wii console only spends 1 hour on a retailer's shelf in U.S.
Reggie was visiting Wired's digs when he made that statement. He also said that 40% of the Wii production goes to the United States. As we already reported the U.S. is the only region where the demand for the wii is still outpacing the supply.
