utherdoul writes: Research firm IHS predicts that the Nintendo Wii U console will sell faster than the Wii did in 2006, moving 3.5 million units worldwide before the end of December 2012. That means supply shortages over the holiday shopping season --and fistfights in toy stores. The console won't even be released until this Sunday, and prices are already surging on secondary markets; the $350 deluxe set is selling for about $600.

the exact opposite."
