Hot damn, those newfangled Wii consoles are more popular than pancakes, including those really tasty pancakes with bananas and strawberries baked into them. Since the console’s launch on November 19, over 600,000 units have been sold, which amounts to ~$190 million in sales.
But wait! That’s not all:
Launch title The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has proved particularly popular, with more than 454,000 units sold – meaning three out of four hardware purchasers picked up a copy.
“Even with sales already in excess of 600,000 units demand continues to exceed supply, as it’s clear this is one of the ‘gotta-have’ products for the holiday season,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
“We’ve shipped retailers several times the amount of hardware the other company was able to deliver for its launch around the same time – and we still sold out.”
And guess what? I still haven’t been able to find one!
