First week Wii U sales in the United States topped 400,000 units sold, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told CNET.
“Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock,” Fils-Aime told the site. “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.”
The newly launched Wii U wasn’t Nintendo’s only player last week. Wii, the company’s 2006-launched console, sold 300,000 units. 3DS, its portable 3D handheld, sold 250,000. And DS sold 275,000. All of its hardware combined, Nintendo sold over 1 million consoles and handhelds over the last week.
