We ran this story the other day but now it's confirmed. This is it—the last time I am running a "there will be Wiis" story. Nintendo, Best Buy...from now on you can buy your advertising. Given that Nintendo's pre-release production numbers were so high, I have no reason to believe that these shortages are legitimate and/or technologically justified.
There will be a 12 unit minimum per store and purchasing two of their advertised games will score you a $10 giftcard.
Bigger ad shot after the jump.
UPDATE: There will be Wiis at Circuit City as well!
Now you know.
