Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has tried to dampen down any fears that the Wii U will be extremely hard to come by this Christmas by saying that the supply chain for the console is extremely solid. Reggie believes that they have got the situation in hand, and that the consoles will be readily available for consumers to purchase later this year.
“We’ve learned a lot of lessons from the launch of the DS, the launch of Wii and the launch of 3DS. And our supply chain is solid. My job is to work with retailers, work with other business partners to create demand for the product, and have the consumer get excited. And I think we’re well on the way to doing that.”
