Yes, we posted about this before
, but as the giant boulder that is the holiday season ominously thunders towards us, we may as well say it again: GameStop
will probably have some major Wii shortages in the near future.
Chief financial officer David Carlson admitted in a conference call that the hardware "may be well out of stock by the holiday season," echoing another executive's recent claim
that the 'Stop's inventory would be empty by the first week of December. He added that both Wii Fit
and Guitar Hero: World Tour
were "in very, very short supply" and "out of stock in many cases" respectively.
Obviously, plenty of other places sell Wiis, but if a major name like GameStop is running out of the things, you can bet they won't be alone. Unless you want to end up like Johnny and Orlando up there, get your skates on.
