Shortages of Nintendo's Wii games console are benefiting the Japanese company's rivals Microsoft and Sony (NYSE:SNE) in the crucial run-up to Christmas in the US.
Nintendo sought to keep sales going at the end of last week by introducing "rain-check certificates" at GameStop (NYSE:GME) video game stores, guaranteeing delivery to buyers of the sold-out console some time in January.
