Reggie Fils-Aime, the Nintendo of America President, had a chat with Wired Magazine recently, no doubt for a feature article that will appear in the newsstand version of the venerable tech magazine soon.

They didn't give away too much on the article, but they did let us know about how Reggie is trying his darn-hardest to get more Wiis available for the U.S. market which is constantly in a state of high demand. He says a Wii will spend an average of 1 hour on the shelf before being sold and that he has passionately pleaded with Japanese leadership in the Nintendo home offices for more than the usual North American allotment of 1.8 million consoles per month, to no avail.

It doesn't add up. Here we are doing this story about how you can't get one, yet it's the fastest and highest selling console right now. Something tells us this demand situation is false just so they can stay in the positive news column. It's despicable really. But it's working.
