    Nintendo's comment on the matter
    Depending on how bad the fire was and even if Nintendo is telling the truth it should cause a delay. How bad of a delay in production who knows.
    Damn, it is going to be the Wii all over again if true. Well it looks like it is going to be like the Wii anyway but this might increase it.

    You know your second link says it won't impact shipping numbers?

    It might be a lie and a fire has to at least cause some damage. Maybe not in the 1 million range but still some damage and delays.

    This thread reminds me when someone asked if incoming Vitas were radioactive after the Fukushima disaster. Despite the fact Vitas were produced in china.

    Nintendo will meet their quota. This just means that their other manufactures have to work harder. Looks like some employees won't be getting any sleep for the next couple of weeks.
