GameStop Now Taking Preorders for Nintendo Wii

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:16 pm

Video game retailer GameStop has begun accepting limited preorders for the hotly anticipated Nintendo Wii game console. Earlier in the week, GameStop offered preorders for Wii’s next-gen competitor, Sony’s PlayStation 3, and sold through its quota within hours.

GameStop indicated it will not accept additional orders beyond a set limit because of uncertainty about when more consoles will be available. As the Wii and the PlayStation 3 were being announced, the Internet was abuzz with the possibility that there will be a shortage of both consoles as the holiday season begins.

However, Nintendo has predicted that it will have at least four million units in stores before the end of December, and Sony expects to have about two million consoles available in the same period.
