    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.

    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!

    2 million divided by 400,000 is 5. So thats 5x more wii's.
