No Wii Ads For The Holidays?

No Wii Ads For The Holidays?

by Bradley DeLorenzoDecember 7, 2007

Due to the massive demand for the Wii and the shortages it has created, Nintendo has been forced to remove ads in the UK for the system during the holiday season.

The ads will be replaced with spots for Nintendo’s much-easier-to-find DS.

Though Nintendo has repeatedly boosted production numbers of the Wii, they have yet to ever meet the high demand. As a result, the company has decided that “retailers have been running out of consoles and it would be irresponsible to continue with the campaign.”

    Ya know… I don’t think they need TV ads. Word of mouth advertising is working great for them. I think the ads are just iceing (sp?) on the cake. I’m sure 99% of the people out there are not buying a Wii just because they seen it on TV.
