Nintendo Takes Wii Raincheck


Posted December 14, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

During a press conference call this morning, Nintendo introduced a program called the Wii Raincheck that they hope will help holiday supply shortages. 

Consumers who purchase an out-of-stock Wii on Dec. 20 or Dec. 21 with the full payment of $249.99 will receive a Wii rain check certificate (while supplies last). This certificate guarantees them a Wii system some time in January. These Wii systems must be picked up by Jan. 29.

The Wii Raincheck will be available only through GameStop, who has tens of thousands of the certificates.

"A certificate needs to be matched to a specific Wii which needs to be matched to a specific store,” says Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. “Only this retailer has the ability to pull off such a program.”

Fils-Aime added that the Wii will be available this weekend at many retailers, including Best Buy and Circuit City, and that Nintendo regrets that supply is falling short of demand for the Wii.
