No Wii under the tree? At least there's a raincheck
They promise you'll have a unit in your waiting hands by January. The end of January.
Well, what are you gonna do? Nintendo's answer to Microsoft's XBox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, the Wii is a wireless home video game that has proven hugely popular, even among demographics not usually into video games. Perhaps this is why demand has outstripped supply in the U.S. and Britain since it was released in both markets in 2006.
It's a nice gesture, sure. But Wii fanboys have been skeptical in their commentary, citing experiences with retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart, who issued rainchecks for units bought in December that couldn't be redeemed until April or May.
Well, perhaps this will prove the old saying, all good things come to those who wait...
