Not Taking the Wii

Nintendo has responded to accusations from online games site MaxConsole that it is “faking” Wii console shortages in order to drum up publicity for the console.

MaxConsole’s suspicisions stemmed from two very similar articles about families paying up to £500 for the console in differing newspapers that they thought might suggest the story was sent out by public relations staff, rather than being a “real” news story.

A Nintendo official stated that: “We strongly reject and resent the accusation that we are ‘PR-ing’ stock shortages.”

“We are doing all we can to ensure that the unprecedented demand for Wii can be met as far as possible in the run up to Christmas.”
