Nintendo accused of faking Wii shortages

Denies limiting supply to boost demand

Claims that Nintendo is limiting supply of its Wii console in a ploy to fake demand for the popular gaming machine have been denied by the company.

"We strongly reject and resent the accusation that we are 'PR-ing' stock shortages," a company official told Max Console.

"We are doing all we can to ensure that the unprecedented demand for Wii can be met as far as possible in the run up to Christmas."

Nintendo says it is working at maximum capacity in producing 1.8 million Wii units per month.
