Fils-Aime promises no supply issues with the Wii U this Christmas
Nintendo Of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has promised that there will be not supply issues with the Wii U at launch this coming Christmas.
Having learned the hard lessons from successive DS launches, the Wii launch and the rocky 3DS launch Nintendo believe they have everything in place for a very smooth launch for their new home console.
Fils-Aime explained, "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."
He went on, "My expectation is that we will do a phenomenal job helping the consumer understand the benefits of Wii U, and that our retailers will do a wonderful job of merchandising the product and getting it into consumers' hands. We want to satisfy all of the demand that's out there. That's our goal."
