My Station Nintendo Wii by into the deep of my soul

The video gaming field is undergoing explosive growth. More and more people are getting on board with the video gaming lifestyle and buying the new consoles which bring so many entertainment options right in to their own homes. In 2007, estimated sales of video gaming consoles were in the neighborhood of $480,000,000! A large part of this total figure is accounted for by sales of the Nintendo Wii.

Sadly, the Nintendo Wii has been difficult to come by for many, given the unprecedented level of demand for this console. There have been waiting lists for the Nintendo Wii which are months long! Video gaming enthusiasts are less than thrilled by the situation.

Since its release last year, Nintendo Wii availability has been nothing short of dismal around the holiday season. If one of the people on your shopping list was hoping for a Wii, they may end up being disappointed. Nintendo has tried to keep pace with the demand for this system, but it has been nearly impossible to do this because of the overwhelming demand on the part of video gamers for this revolutionary console.

Finding a Nintendo Wii has been more difficult in some parts of the world than in others. In the UK, stores have has considerable trouble keeping the consoles in stock ever since their release. Since the beginning of the year though, Nintendo Wii availability has been slowly increasing. It is now a possibility to go into a store and emerge with a Nintendo Wii console, which has been an unlikely event before now.

Problems With Nintendo Wii Availability:

  • Holiday rush – The holiday season created a demand for the Nintendo Wii which far outstripped the supply of these popular consoles, creating a shortage worldwide.
  • Disappointment for gamers – the lack of Nintendo Wii availability led to a lot of long faces this past holiday season.
  • Scams – criminals took advantage of the unprecedented demand for the Nintendo Wii by perpetrating swindles on unsuspecting gamers.
  • Deceptive marketing – unscrupulous shop owners used deceptive tactics to sell more Nintendo Wii gaming consoles.

Deceptive Marketing and Controversial Sales Tactics

Some unscrupulous retailers were using deceptive strategies to sell more Wii consoles during the early days of Nintendo Wii availability in the UK. Knowing that the Wii was difficult to find, some retailers used the old “this is the last one in stock” trick to get customers to buy immediately based on the scarcity of the item rather than thinking about the purchase.

Other retailers overstated their inventory levels and promised Nintendo Wii availability at a certain date – which ended up getting them into trouble when the Wii consoles were not there at the time which they had been promised to customers.

The low availability of the Nintendo Wii at the beginning led a lot of consumers to fall for the plots of swindlers. On more than one occasion, swindlers sold a Nintendo Wii either through a website of their own or via online auction sites. The customer, eager to get their hands on a Wii before everyone else would pay and then receive a box full of bricks rather than a Nintendo Wii as a result of being taken in by this swindle.

Now that the Wii has become more widely available, these sorts of scams are now rare. Nintendo Wii should continue to become more and more available and soon there will be no more waiting lists for the exciting gaming console, no matter what time of year it is and where you live.
