Six weeks and counting, Amazon.com is still out-of-stock of Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board. Currently, the starting price for Wii Fit Plus with Balance Board is $152.99 new!
Again, that price is from 2nd/3rd party vendors on Amazon.com.
I'm guessing the Wii Balance Board is proving harder to manufacture than Nintendo anticipated. Again, Nintendo seems to have problems with keeping up manufacturing of not only hardware pieces like the Wii and Wii Balance Board, but also of just software like New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
I understand they may have played it conservatively with initial Wii production, but seriously, they need to get the production problems resolved. I'm glad to know their products are selling extremely well, and they seem to be quality products, but six weeks and counting for a major site like Amazon.com to be out of stock of a product, is crazy!
As for the game-play times, I think New Super Mario Bros. Wii will pass Wii Sports Resort on May 1, 2010, when the data is updated that day. I think both games will be reporting right around 6,800,000 "Total Hours" played, with New Super Mario Bros. Wii slightly ahead of Wii Sports Resort.
