Will 'Wii Fit' be this year's impossible-to-find holiday gift?

Will shoppers still scoop up the $250 Wii console if they can't also get their hands on 'Wii Fit?'

Even though it was released in the U.S.back in May of this year, Nintendo's Wii Fitlooks like it will be especially hard to come by this holiday season. Forbes reports that while Nintendo has finally ramped up production of the Wii console to meet demand, the Wii Fit--a $90 packaged bundle including a bathroom-scale-sized balance board and a game disc--won't be as easy to find.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime tells Forbes, "With Wii hardware, I think we've got a good shot at meeting demand during the holidays...With Wii Fit, I know we'll fall short. That's a product we have consumers lining up for each morning outside of our Nintendo World store."

We checked on eBay and found plenty of Wii Fit packages for sale, mostly between $125-150, so the game is available, albeit at a premium price. Will shoppers still scoop up the $250 Wii console if they can't also get their hands on Wii Fit?
