Thoughts:
Guess what?  You probably already know if you've followed these reports, 10 weeks and counting!  Amazon.com has been out-of-stock of Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board for 10 weeks now.
The fact Amazon.com(and other stores) can't keep Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board in-stock though, doesn't prevent an "analyst" like Michael Pachter from saying Wii Fit Plus is "...finally starting to fade...".

Amazon.com used to list Wii Fit Plus and Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, under two tabs on the same page.
If you look at Red Steel 2's or Monster Hunter 3's Amazon.com pages, you can see what I'm talking about, as those two games are being sold with accessories or by themselves, just like Wii Fit Plus.
Amazon.com isn't listing Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board anymore on the same page as Wii Fit Plus(software only).

I don't know if they separated the games, due to the stock being an issue and third party vendors charging a good bit more for the game with the balance board, but that's the only thing I can think of.

Question:
Have you been trying to purchase Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board, or do you know anybody that has been trying to purchase it?  If so, are you/they having trouble finding it?
