Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has announced that Nintendo managed to sell 400,000 Wii U consoles during the first week of the system being available. Fils-Aime also said that Nintendo sold 300,000 Wii consoles during the same period. The Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS also had a good week selling 250,000 and 275,000 respectively. The original Wii console Wii sold 600,000 units during its first 8 days on sale back in 2006.
“Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock. Retailers are also doing their best to get the product to store shelves. But as soon as product hits retail, they’re selling out immediately.”
Thanks to everyone that sent this in.
