Nintento is actually going to have to try to meet demand this time around. The Wii had shortages for months. Since the console was highly anticipated, that was fine. The WiiU does not have near as much steam. If Nintendo wants a great holiday season, they better not let people down by not making enough. Most people have a 360 or PS3 already. If parents can't get a hold of a WiiU, my guess is most won't hesitate to buy some PS3 or 360 games instead of the WiiU.

I'm no fan of the Wii but they already said the Wiimotes will work on the WiiU so it won't be a single player.
True, but not all games will support the wiimote. Many will require the new controller.
