More than a year after Nintendo launched the Nintendo Wii, it’s still the hottest selling video game console around. And good luck trying to find it. Stores are selling out of Wiis almost as soon as they get them in stock.
NPR called me last week and asked if I’d get to the bottom of a simple question: is this a real shortage or is it an artificial scarcity created to make the Wii look hotter than it really is?
For the answer, check out my report that ran this afternoon on NPR’s Day to Day. As you can probably guess, this was a fun story to work on. I got to track down a Nintendo Wii owner and play some games. And NPR did a great job mixing the audio for this story.
