Nintendo have announced that is has sold more than 600,000 Wii consoles in North America just 8 days after it's launch on November 19th. Sony have sold 400,000 PlayStation 3 consoles in North America, but are having trouble meeting demand due to component issues with the Blu-ray Drive. Nintendo intend to ship 4 million units in North America, while Sony intend to ship 1 million units.
The Wii is due for release in Europe (including the UK) on 8th December, while our Australian readers can expect a 7th December launch, conveniently in time for Christmas.
