“The demand is unprecedented due to which the stock in supply fells short” – yes this is the fact about the hottest gaming plus exercising tool namely “Nintendo Wii Fit“. Consumers continue to struggle to find a copy of Wii fit.

This is what an extract from what the Nintendo spokesperson has to say:

“Nintendo had a substantial supply nationwide for launch, though some stores saw spot shortages due to unprecedented demand for this unique product. The consumer response to ‘Wii Fit’ at launch was historically exceptional when compared with peripheral-based video game products. We are providing retailers with a constant supply of ‘Wii Fit,’ so you should see a regular supply of ‘Wii Fit’ on store shelves as we move through the summer and into the holidays.”

According to the NPD sales tracking group, “Wii Fit” sold more than 369,600 copies in the U.S. in July. I must say they were the luckiest of the lot (Nintendo wii fit seekers)
