Germanii to the Rescue

Judging by comments on the BBC’s website many disappointed shoppers have been unable to find Wii stock in the UK.

In the US the Wii outsold the PS3 by 3 to 1 last quarter and Sony have now cut the basic PS3 down to $399 to create momentum. Due to high demand, many Wii sales in the UK are based around packages which include games, accessories and inevitably a hefty price tag. So UK buyers seem to have been looking to European neighbors for help…

If the comments on the BBC site are anything to go by then Amazon.de in Germany seems to be the place to buy a Wii if you’re a Brit in need. People have been reporting stock of basic models at a reasonable price. And so Mario’s machine rolls on.

It looks like Nintendo have played this one like a pro. A year since release and no price cut, amazing sales figures and contracts to supply to retirement homes. Who would have guessed it?
