According to Taiwan component
manufacturers, due to the short supply of chips, Nintendo's plan
to up the production of Wii consoles worldwide will have to wait until some time later, which will be next year, most likely. Originally thought to alleviate the console drought during the second half of this year, Nintendo is now forced to stand by and wait before kicking their production into overdrive. Regardless of shortages, the Wii has still sold over 10 million worldwide.
