1 Hour Wii

Just read this fascinating article from Wired.

According to Nintendo, the average Wii sits on the store shelf for approximately one hour before it is bought. One hour.

It's easy to understand how Nintendo made it to the top of the pack based on sales like that. I'd love to see a comparrision with the iPhone, Rock Band or other hot consumer items to understand the correlation of shelf life (speed) and sales.

The demand is mostly in America as Japan and Europe have leveled off in terms of overall "Wii" craziness.
