    8 Days Since Launch, 600,000 Units Sold

    Just eights days on from the North American launch Nintendo is reporting sales of some 600,000 console units, amounting to a staggering $190 million in sales.

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was no doubt the favourite launch title amoung shoppers, accounting for a massive 75% of all hardware sales moving 454,000 units.

    Nintendo itself has said that it expects to ship a total of 4 million consoles globally during the six weeks between the system's launch on November 19 in North America and the end of 2006. The Japanese launch of the system will follow North America on December 2nd.

    "Even with sales already in excess of 600,000 units, demand continues to exceed supply, as it's clear this is one of the 'gotta-have' products for the holiday season," commented Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. "We've shipped retailers several times the amount of hardware the other company was able to deliver for its launch around the same time -- and we still sold out.”

    He added: “Given the inclusive nature of Wii game play, we're seeing this new form of video gaming is already a huge hit with gamers and newcomers alike. It continues to be a phenomenal launch.”

    considering that those figures are just for north america, that is good! Wii should hit well over the million mark after Japan, Australasia and Europe launches.
