Well the Wii U has a tough task ahead of itself.  That task?  Handling the launch of their popular system better than the Nintendo Wii did!  We can all remember how tough it was to get a Wii at launch.  I mean the system had a large number of shortages, and it took a long time for them to finally start meeting the demand.  Every time they got a shipment of 4 systems in at Walmart, they were gone an hour later.  Nintendo’s vice president of sales and marketing, Scott Moffitt, told GamesIndustry:

“I can tell you this – on opening week we will have more systems on hand for the Wii U than we did for the launch of Wii. And, second, our replenishments will be more frequent this holiday time than during the Wii launch.  But, having said all that, it’s impossible to exactly predict demand, and so I can’t say that we won’t have some shortages out there and that people won’t have to be a little patient with the replenishment truckload and shipments and boatloads to arrive.”

Certainly having more supply will net them more sales.  Simple supply and demand.  The demand is there now for the system, the supply just needs to keep up.  Still, part of me believes the Wiis success was the lack of supply. Parents were going crazy for it because it was so hard to get for their kids.  I guess in the end I’m not a economist… I guess we’ll have to see what they figure out about the sales of the Wii U!
