Wii Fit in stock "as soon as possible"

Nintendo: "We're doing everything we can".

Nintendo has pledged that Wii Fit stocks will be replenished "as soon as possible", following recent shortages.

The full extent of the supply drought of the hugely popular exercise title was revealed with the release of Chart-Track's latest report.

With stock of the title almost completely drying up, the game dramatically plummeted out of the UK All Format Top 40 altogether, having been No2 in the listings last week. The remaining stock could only push the game to No15 in the Wii chart.

But while Nintendo admitted that "there are pockets of stock shortages in areas of the UK", a spokesman stressed "we are doing everything we can to replenish shortages as soon as possible.

"To this effect we are continuing to bring Wii Fit stock into retailers across the UK on a weekly basis," he added.

If you're still struggling to get hold of Wii Fit, you might want to keep an eye on this website which tells you exactly who currently has them in stock, and how much you'll be expected to pay.

Interestingly, the stock history feature reveals online sites such as Amazon have held stock for a matter of minutes before selling out again.

Unsurprisingly, many third party sellers on Amazon and eBay are charging upwards of GBP 120.00 for the in-demand game - so if you have an unopened copy and fancy cashing in, now's the time.

Meanwhile, the outlook for Nintendo DS and Wii stock is looking better, with stock for both platforms "becoming much more freely available in the UK as we constantly ship stock in across the UK - now and in the coming weeks and months," Nintendo confirmed.
