    only 20,000 in Auz

    I was told yesterday at Games Wizards that Nintendo are only shipping 20,000 units to Australia. So if you havn't preordered theres a good chance you wont get one until mid - late Jan. when the 2nd shipment arrives

    That sounds extremely wrong.

    A while ago, I heard that they were going to be supplying enough for the pre-orders in Aus. Whether that's still true or not, I don't know.

    US is getting 2 million and Canada is getting probably like 800k or something...
    Japan is probably getting alot too since wii's origin/ nintendo's origin is In japan while in Europe... Its probably the rest :P

    20,000 units sounds about right to me since the Gamecube only sold 100,000 units in Australia up to 2004.

    Source Game on - ITNews - smh.com.au

    We are a tiny part of the market down here so Nintendo is most likely playing the wait and see game to determine the demand for them in Oz. But don't fret, if you really want one order it from the U.K., it will be the same machine as we both use the PAL system. Don't worry about region locking as you can use U.K. Gamecube games on an Aussie Cube (had to import Dakar because I couldn't get it anywhere in OZ when it first came out) so the same should apply with the Wii.

    Yeah you could be right, but it only helps with the mystique, some people see SOLD OUT as 'wow this has to be the must have thing, damn I gotta get one'

    i'm confused..so if you have pre-ordered in australia, are you guaranteed a wii on launch? Like i've pre-ordered with toys'r'us..AGEs ago when they were still offering the free game at launch thing. Will i be guaranteed a wii or will it be first in first served!
