1m units at US Wii launch

'Plentiful' stock for 19th Nov.

The US launch of the Nintendo Wii will boast one million units, according to Ron Bertram, vice president and general manager for Nintendo of Canada.

"We're looking at a million for North America at launch," he said, speaking to MacKenzie Financial.

"If we get what we're supposed to get, this will be our most plentiful launch in the 15 years I've been at Nintendo."

"All signs are extremely positive," he added.

The confident statement from Bertram echoes UK general manager David Yarnton's belief in a strong launch for the Wii in Europe, who stated last week that he expected to see "more stock than we've ever had."

The Wii will launch in America on November 19th priced USD $249.99 and in Europe on December 8th priced EUR 249 (GBP 179).
