In an exclusive interview with Eurogamer T, Nintendo UK Boss David Yarnton claims that the Wii will be the biggest console launch in Europe to date.
Nintendo is estmating they will have shipped over 4 million units by year's end, and Europe wil be a substantial portion of that number
Yarnton is promising more stock for Wii this Christmas than any previous launch in the company's history – but warned that shortages were inevitable, boasting that "20 million wouldn't be enough" such is demand for the console.

"[With Wii] we're looking at about four million units before the end of the year globally and Europe will get a reasonable proportion of that," he added.
"The stock that we're looking to get we believe will probably be more than we've ever had for any console launch. But from the feedback we've had from our retailers, whatever we have won't be enough as the demand from people is really heating up for it."
