Nintendo won't have enough Wii supply until 2009?

According to IDC analyst Billy Pidgeon, Wii shortage problems may continue until 2009!
"I believe the Wii will continue strong growth although supply continues to be a problem," Pidgeon continued. "I'd like to see Wii hardware shipping in larger quantities or mass market consumers may cool on it. Having said that, I don't believe supply will meet demand for the Wii until 2009. Xbox 360 and PS3 need system-selling games ASAP. Halo 3 will help, as will Lair and Heavenly Sword, but that leaves a hole in Q2 which will be filled by Wii, DS and PSP hardware and software. We'll also see more PC and PS2 software picking up the slack."
