Nintendo said yesterday that they expect to have just one million DS units available in the US before Christmas. Given the hype and timing for the new dual-screen handheld, we fully expect to see some big-time shortages, mom-on-mom catfights, and millions of disappointed kids come December 25th. Saying that a shortage can be a good thing, senior vice president of Nintendo George Harrison thinks that the "Cabbage Patch Doll syndrome" laced with "consumer interest and fury" is good for business. We'll be revisiting this in the coming weeks just to see how much the things are going for on eBay as the buy-my-kid-whatever-the-heck-he-wants season approaches.
