Wii shortage might force Nintendo to pull ads in UK

wii Nintendo has a problem. It’s a good problem, but a problem nonetheless. See there’s this video game system called the Wii that Nintendo makes and the company can’t seem to keep it in stock. It’s gotten so out of hand that company execs are talking about pulling TV ads for the Wii in the UK.

The ads are mostly holiday-themed ads that would instead be run next year. "We are doing everything possible to supply continued levels of stock and meet demand as quickly as possible," said a company spokesperson. "As we are keen to act responsibly we are potentially looking at moving some advertising on some products into early 2008."
