And now when I go into BB, I see piles of them, along with Wii Fit.
It'll be interesting to see if demand kills supply again during the Christmas season.
Truthfully, I expect it will.
Just 12 million to go and it'll be the best-selling set-top console in Nintendo's history! (NES: 61.91. SNES: 49.10. N64: 32.93. GCN: 21.74.) Not bad considering the downward spiral the N was in after Sony got into the game.
It does have a long way to go to become the best-selling hardware of any kind, of course. The GB/P/C shifted 118.69 million (the DS recently broke the 100M mark, of which I count for two).
