Nintendo has announced that they will now be shipping out 2 million Nintendo Wii units on launch day instead of the previously announced 1 million Wii units. This is really great news for gamers, parents and just about everyone who wants a Wii or wasn’t able to get their hands on a PS3. It also eliminates the process of camping outside of stores before launch day.
In case you don’t happen to get a Nintendo Wii on launch day, Nintendo has predicted that it will have 7-9 million Wii units in the 4th quarter, from October to December. Originally, Nintendo had announced it would have shipped 6 million Wii units by March 2007- it’s now looking more like 11 million units. A slap to Sony’s shortage? I think so.
