When I walked into the Nintendo World Store yesterday I was convinced something big was going on. There was a long line snaking all through the store. I asked a guy in line if there was some sort of event going on. "Nope," he said. "Just waiting for a Wii." Shawha!? A store employee goes on to tell me that they have a line like this EVERY DAY to consume the daily shipment, and they're sold out of their Wiis by 11am or Noon. It's been over six months! This is crazy bones.
Also, Kotaku has an blurb linking to a USA Today article on the same subject.
