Nintendo promises more Wiis

Don't get your hopes up or anything, but Nintendo is saying they plan to ship 14 million Wiis worldwide by the end of the fiscal year. After seeing the impressive rise of the console the past few months, Nintendo finally realized that if they made more, then they'd sell more. From GamesIndustry:

A Nintendo spokesperson has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that the company plans to increase Wii production as demand for the console continues to outstrip supply. "For the first three months of this year we have been producing one million hardware units per month. We are increasing the manufacturing capacity and forecast to ship 14 million in this fiscal year to our distributors and retail customers globally," the spokesperson said.

"We have put solid production plans in place to ensure a steady flow of product through 2007. We are constantly replenishing Wii supplies however with such high demand, stock is still flying off shelves so consumers should continue to be in touch with their local retailers to confirm when new stock is arriving."

Just wait until all those new Wii owners find out there are no games to play. Joke's on them!
