Reggie Fils-Aime - Image 1 For those who are worried about the oft-mentioned “crisis” of a holiday Wii shortage, don’t fret, as Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime assures gamers that Nintendo is working hard on making sure that all retail stores will have Wiis in stock.

Contrary to what other people are saying about Nintendo capitalizing on the shortage to make the Wii appeal more to consumers, Fils-Aime explained:

Anyone who suggests that a shortage is good for business really doesnÂ’t understand business. We want the consumer to walk into any retail establishment and find the product. And thatÂ’s what weÂ’re working tirelessly to make happen.

Fils-Aime also addressed the concerns about Nintendo not giving core gamers as much attention as the casual gaming market. He explained that the core gamers only represent a fraction of the total gaming market, compared to the casual gamers.

However, he stressed that this doesn’t mean Nintendo is neglecting the core gaming minority. “We need to make sure that we include them in the mix as well,” said Fils-Aime, stating games aimed at the core gamer, such as Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
