The big story, however, is the Wii U, which launched on November 18. Fils-Aime explained to CNET the Wii U's sales figures during the last week were essentially capped by the company's ability to get units to store shelves.

Original Wii was 600,000 I believe.

That's good I guess. Though I wouldn't put it past Reggie to somehow include more sales in that number than most people would consider to be sales. Considering lately he said that Black Ops 2 looks significantly better on Wii U and that Wii U is virtually sold out at retail, which it's not.

That's some good 'mustering' on the original Wii's part.

Only 400,000 units. Even less than the 3,000,000 Patcher predicted.

If only they had used the 6670, this wouldn't have happened.

Not completely. It was 600,000 in eight days including software and peripheral sales.
