While Sony is celebrating the PS3's birthday with cake, Nintendo does not have time to celebrate. That is because they are too busy selling Nintendo Wii consoles at an astounding rate. Even a year after the console went on sale, Nintendo is having a very hard time keeping up with demand for their next-generation console. Nintendo Marketing Head George Harrison explains why it's so hard to keep up with demand.
