My town (despite me naming 4 towns) does represent a sizable number of people and is an indicator that the console is not selling as well as people initially thought, at least not here.


If we're gonna go by thost circumstances (and I'd prefer not to), then:

While locations and milage will vary, the in stock vs. sold out ratio is about 1:3 (or 1 out of every 4 stores). I don't think it'll be too hard to pass 500K-600K if 75% of North America sold out in 24 hours, going by those numbers.

Anyone that thinks Alaska has a population under 50,000 is simply ignorant or a troll.

It was based on the 2 Zip codes you provided. Not all of Alaska


The 2 zip codes provided gave you results for all of the major towns in Alaska:

Fairbanks - 99701
Wasilla - 99654
Within 50 miles of Wasilla - Anchorage, Eagle River

Stop trolling.

If you put them into Walmart.com's Wii U in stock search this is what comes up:

I'm thinking between 500k and 600k, demand isn't super high but there is some.


I think you're being way too generous with those numbers. I'm thinking around ~400k


You cannot possibly be serious. There were 500K preorders at GameStop alone.

I read an article yesterday that Gamestop that there were 1.2 million preoders (world wide)

But I think this also includes this "Waiting List" that they have in place...
