Submitted by rikitikitik (305) at 3:59AM PST on August 15, 2007


With the Wii outselling the XBOX 360 and the PS3 4:1 and 6:1 respectively each week, the console is set to reach the 1 million mark in 3 to 4 weeks. The console is also set to surpass the Gamecube's lifetime sales by the end of September and, if trends continue, surpass the 360's lifetime sales before the end of October.

Wii demand still outpaces supply

CNN - July 2, 2007


Submitted by Butterball (1062) at 7:43AM PST on July 3, 2007


By 9 a.m., the line outside Manhattan's Nintendo World store was snaking down the block. The Nintendo World store in New York's Rockefeller Center usually sells out of Wiis as soon as they get them. More than 100 hopeful Wii owners came from as far as New Jersey -- some as early as 6 a.m. with kids and grandparents in tow -- to get their hands on the gaming console best known for its wireless, motion-sensitive controller. It's been more than seven months since Nintendo launched the Wii, but the consoles are selling so well that supply still hasn't caught up with demand. You can get one, sure, but be prepared to call around and arrive promptly when the shipments do.

More games were purchased in the first 18 months of the Wii's life than any other console's first year and a half, Nintendo said today. About 50 million games were sold for the Wii in its first 18 months, compared to about 42 million games in the first 18 months of the PS2. The Xbox 360 came in at 30 million or so, the Xbox at roughly 28 million and finally the PS3 at about 20 million.

Rumor:New Nintendo Wii bundle for Christmas

CNRevolution - October 5, 2007


Submitted by Just_Ben (128) at 8:17AM PST on October 5, 2007


Maybe I'm missing something here but a new update from my distributor contact reveals a second Wii console (it's currently being called "New Pack") that is expected to be sent out to retailers soon. Either this unit is just a regular Wii with a new UPC, or we can expect a brand new Wii sku/bundle to hit retailers this Holiday Season. The retail price is expected to be around $289.99 (CAN) based on the information I have available. Perhaps we can expect a new color? Nevertheless, we were promised big news in September and hopefully, this was supposed to be it.
