The Wii shortage may finally be easing. The popular console has been a hard get in North America since it was launched. But the Wii has been available all day at Best Buy's site (search for product 8008559) at its suggested price of $250.
It even made an appearance at Amazon, where it has only sporadically and briefly popped up. The timing seems to match analyst and game-store projections that Nintendo would finally be shipping more Wiis to North America.
