Wii hype dying down?

Ever since the Wii console released 2 years ago it has been a hard to find system. But now it seems like you can buy them at any store. almost every store that sells games has a sign that says "We have Wiis"

So do you think all the hype is finally dead?

Well, the Wii is still selling like hot cakes, at the time of typing this the Nintendo Wii has sold, 24,228,303 million units worldwide. ^_^
But yeah I think the hype has died down a little bit.

(As for knowing how many Wii's have sold, I can back up my sources with a simple link, so if you want the link ask me, thanks)

Well, consles are in very high demand when they come out. Eventully, supply and demand meet down the road. So it gets easier to buy it.

Wii's are still selling quite a bit, but its not for everyone. I see limited quanities still in the paper ads.

I work at Circuit City on the weekends, and when we get Wiis in, it's on Sundays, so I'm there every time. Since the Wiis came out, we've had a line outside the store every Sunday they're advertised to be in stock. However, the last time we got them in, we actually closed the store that night with a few left.

Still, the Wii is outselling the other two consoles by a longshot, so I don't think it's safe to say the hype is dying down all that much yet. I think most everyone who wants one has one, and people trying to get them just assume they're sold out, so they don't bother coming into the stores unless they can get there when they first get them in stock.

Wiis are becoming more common because of the amount of time Wiis have been out.

Well... if you take into account that it has been two years already since the release, that the economy is not helping and that consoles have an average 5 years of life before being replaced byu a next gen... I think that it's normal to see a decrease of the demand.

I see the demand becoming less, but it certainly isn't dead.

The reason is that everyone that want a Wii has a wii

What Nintendo needs to do now is master the games and it'll be perfect!
