Nintendo of America: Gearing Up for Pokemon Diamond/Pearl!
MTV interviewed Reggie Fils-Aime (President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America), at the Design Innovate Create Entertain (DICE) conference. Among the issues discussed were the shortages of the Wii and DS. Also addressed was the soon to be launched Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl:
From MTV.com article:
Wiis are beginning to show up in stores, but it's Nintendo's DS Lite portable that is in even shorter supply, despite being on the market in the U.S. since last summer. "We put everything in the marketplace that we humanly could by December 25th. But from December 26th until mid-January, we were effectively out of stock." Fils-Aime said relief will come in stages. "It's going to be tight probably until March. And then as we gear up for the April 22nd launch of 'Pokemon Diamond' and 'Pokemon Pearl,' things should certainly open up at that point."
