Wii launch quantity

16 replies 3 views Edited Nov 24, 2006
After looking at http://www.nexgenwars.com/ I was surprised to see that the Wii only had 477,500 Wii sold at launch. That's less than the 500,000 PS3 that was supposed to be on launch day. I thought the Wii was supposed to be in large quantity at launch?

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.

I don't know about those numbers....
 
Besides, 500 000 at launch for PS3? Yeah right, that's why they are all gone and only 277 000 are sold? I think the Wii is doing pretty well right now, but you can't compare it's sales to the 360.

You mean it displayed the Wii at 700k and now it's 477,500? I guess they received new result showing that amount.

I am sure it will still do fine. It doesnt need large amounts to make it the best system.
