    4 million Wii systems available globally say Nintendo

    Nintendo have today released a press statement detailing their launch plans for the Wii console.

    According to the press release Nintendo say they are, "mobilizing the largest worldwide video game console launch in at least a decade, with approximately 4 million Wii™ systems available globally during the six weeks between Wii's Nov. 19 launch in the Americas and the end of 2006".

    A large share of that worldwide allocation will indeed be making it's way to North America Nintendo expect supply to be outpaced by demand judging by retailer orders.

    Excerpt from the press release:
    Nintendo is maximizing all its resources for a rapid replenishment program designed to consistently pump Wii consoles into the supply pipeline and keep retailers' shelves as filled as possible. In addition, Nintendo factories are working around the clock manufacturing the extraordinary new system. Nintendo is employing fleets of planes, cargo ships, trains and ground vehicles in each global market to maintain the best supply flow possible, starting in the Americas.

    "Wii is for both experienced and uninitiated gamers, and it will be available for the masses," says Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. "Because of demand, we're urging shoppers not to get complacent. The level of demand we're seeing goes beyond the ordinary. Retailers are telling us a significant fraction of customers pre-ordering Wii are nontraditional gamers - people looking for a better way to play. And that's exactly what Wii is designed to provide."

    I think it's great how many there will be...

    Compare 4 million Wii's with the measly 400,000 PS3 America will be getting in just over 2 weeks time (wait...the Wii in just over 2 weeks time aswell for you Americans!).

    And Im sure, seeing as the Wii is being launched in America first, and it has been confirmed many of them are going to America that, there will be well over 400,000.

    If they all sell out (which im presuming they will) does that mean 1 in every 140 americans will have a wii? I mean, say an average of three people per home; thats about one wii in every 45-50 homes? Wow. Thats a lot. And thats just before New Year!
