1400 Wiis sold out in 10 minutes on Amazon

Wii sold out, sorry (that's a pun, get it?)I don’t know how, but the Nintendo Wii continues to sell out like it’s still launch day. Last week Amazon unleashed their next batch of Wii stock for some early holiday shoppers, and they sold out. Fast. 1,400 Wiis in ten minutes fast.

With Christmas fast approaching, things don’t look like they’ll get any better. Nintendo is shipping almost 2 million Wiis a month, but many people still can’t find one since launch.

Meanwhile, if anyone’s looking for a Wii, the stores near Portland, OR always seem to be swarming with them. Maybe they’re keeping all the extras in the Pacific Northwest since it’s cheaper to ship from Seattle to Portland? (Or maybe it’s because the Northwest is Microsoft Country?)
