Nintendo shipped 4 million units, it's doubtful that they all sold on launch day and nexgenwars is very inaccurate from what I've heard.



If that would be true, stores would receive daily shipments of Wii. My BestBuy received a few late Tuesday and were all sold Wednesday in the morning. Hopefully, they received more tonight and will be avalaible tomorrow morning

It's probably 4 million for the launch window, I dunno how long that is after the actual launch. But I still stand by the fact that NGW is inaccurate. Where do they get their figures from? They would have to be connected to every major retailer and have access to their records. To me it looks like a very unofficial site so I doubt that's true.

I thought it was 400,000....I heard that from 2 different magazines.



That was the original plan but from what it seems, only 200,000 where shipped. They concluded to this amount since stores were unable to fulfill their preorder. From what I understood, store headquarters  where told by Sony how many they would received and went with that for the number of preorders they would take. Since Sony didn't deliver, they got stock with preorders they couldn't fulfill.

Anyway, this thread is about the Wii launch quantity, not the PS3

They go with published result. I don't think they are privy to any private data.

Wii had something like 700,000 last sunday, and 4 mill by the end of the launch window (new years eve). Even if there wasen't as much hype for Nintendo's machine there was more software sales. For each PS3 sold 1.5 games where sold for it, for each wii that was sold 3 games where purchased for it.

That surprised me since the Wii already came with 5 sport games...

Yeah, me too. Nintendo is not known for producing good sports games, but I think they're making a step in the right direction.:smileyhappy:
