That is pretty annoying. You pre-order and pre-pay for a games console, and you find out you're not going to get it.

That's why I don't even do pre-order. I get it about 6-7 months after it comes out. :P

That is why I don't do pre-order. I get it about 4-5 months after it comes out.

The electronic and gaming industry, both hardware and software, a lot of times wind up having production or shipping delays. That's why prepaying is a sometimes dangerous concept, especially if you are the impatient type.

In all fairness to Nintendo, I don't think they thought that the Wii was going to do as well as it did. Given that it was the new kid on the block, they thought there would be enough time to get production up to snuff before it exploded in popularity.

Nintendo should do something about the shortages or else impatient gamers might switch to the xbox 360 or to the Playstation 3 to get their gaming fix.
