Wii U Sells 400K Units In Its First Week

Posted on Monday, November 26 @ 10:50:52 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Nintendo has confirmed that it sold 400,000 units of the Wii U during its launch week in the United States, which is a bit short of its 475,000 units sold when the Wii launched in 2006. However, Nintendo is quite pleased with this news, as according to them, that is approximately how many units they released in the first place.

"Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in an interview with CNET. "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."

In other news, Nintendo sold almost as many Wii units last week (300,000) and more DS units than 3DS units. I suppose people either prefer the old over the new or just like spending less money. Discuss.
