More Nintendo Wii U units coming to US stores
Nintendo’s Wii U console has been sold out in just a few days in US, but now Scott Moffitt, executive vice president of marketing at Nintendo, say that more units are on the way to US stores, although there were no details given on exactly when the console will be available.
He talks about the importance of getting mainstream consumers to try Wii U and discusses the improvements the second wave of games will bring. He also promises that more Wii Us are heading to store shelves for the busy Christmas shopping window.
“We’ll have more replenishment during the holiday season to replenish those stocks and refill those store shelves as quickly as we can. We can’t guarantee there won’t be shortages, but we’ll do our best to keep up with it”, Moffitt told Forbes.
“What we’ve announced is that there will be 5.5 million consoles shipped from Day One through the end of our fiscal year, which is March 31. Since the US is launching first, you can expect there probably would be more available in the US than in other territories. We’re going to manufacture as many as we can to keep up with demand, and hopefully we can do that this time”.
It looks like the new Wii U could end up becoming very popular, and supply of the console could be limited coming up to Christmas, as soon as we get more details on when it will be available again we will let you guys know.
