GameStop SVP Bob McKenzie Says Wii Supply Is Finally Sufficient To Meet Demand

Posted Mar 25, 2009

The Nintendo Wii has been around for three years.  The problem with the console was that there was a lot more demand than there was a supply for those first two years.  GameStop Senior Vice President Bob McKenzie believes that the company now has enough supply to meet the demand for video game consumers.

“You know, three years later, we finally have enough inventory on the shelf, and we’ve got a couple of weeks in supply of this. That’s good because we can finally determine and gauge it before we get into the fourth holiday season,” stated McKenzie.

McKenzie was also surprised by the success of some of the Wii games.  For example, GameStop had no idea that the video game Wii Fit was going to take off as much as it did.  EA Active is starting to pick up once again due to the success of games like Wii Fit.
