Did I call it? Did I?


If a recent press release correction is any indication, Nintendo may not be as sure that they will sell one million Wiis in the U.S. in 2006 as previously thought. The Wii sold at a rate of more than 70,000 a day for the seven days represented in NPD's November data, and Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has said that Nintendo would have 1 million Wiis in the U.S. in early December, with two million shipped by mid-January.

Today, however, Nintendo of America alerted the media that its statement from yesterday which read: "Despite spot shortages in some locations, well more than a million Wii systems will be available in the United States by the end of the year" has been retracted, and should be ignored.
