'Wii Fit' U.S. Shortages Intentional

For some Wii fans, the exercise in Wii Fit has been in running around trying to find one.

That was the case for Dhruv Thukral, a 25-year-old from Santa Monica who raced from store to store the day Nintendo Co.'s fitness game came out May 19.

"It's sold out everywhere," the USC computer science graduate student said.

Wii Fit is the latest title for Nintendo's Wii game console. Shortages have become a chronic condition for Nintendo, beginning with the Wii, which is still in short supply a year-and-a-half after the $250 console was introduced.
