    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.

    Wow, you live just next to my country, but remember man that Latin Americans will not get the wii, they have to bring them from the USA... and its not too difficult though...

    yes, the world seems to forget us :frown2: , but I don't know how, I'll get a Wii! Maybe a friend will bring it to me, but the problem is that she can't enter the country with more than $300 of "gifts", what means a wii and a game to me and nothing with her...in other words, I'll have to think another way!

    it's not a good idea, the customs(i don't know if this is exactaly the word, sorry) probably won't let it pass...hard life :(

    and sorry everyone, i know this topic isn't a chat, i just did this now because it's quite interesting (i think).
