Nintendo's US boss Reggie Fils-Aime is celebrating a good start for Wii U in America with 400,000 consoles having been sold in the country in one week.
According to Reggie, it's been a great week for Nintendo as the company has sold over 1.2 million hardware units in total over including 300,000 Wiis, 250,000 3DS and 275,000 DS systems.
Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock," said Fils-Aime. "Retailers are also doing their best to get the product to store shelves. But as soon as product hits retail, they're selling out immediately."
Wii U launches in the UK on Friday with a midnight launch at HMV. Fans are already queuing outside the store in central London in a bid to be the first people in the country to pick up a Wii U.
At the last count, Wii had sold 97.18 million worldwide since it launched in 2006? Do you think Wii U can beat it? If so, it would be Nintendo's best selling home console of all time.
