When will Nintendo ship non-launch consoles to retailers?

I don't want to buy a launch console because of the problems they're having. I'll wait for Nintendo to ship working consoles. So does anyone know when retailers will sell 2nd gen consoles?

Or any informed guesstimates...? Thanks in advance!

Even if the unit isn't strictly speaking a "launch unit", it will still be the same. You'll have to wait for a revision if you're hoping for hardware level bug fixes, which might not be until summer time.

That said, most issues are related to firmware. Just wait a bit and most kinks should be worked out.
