By the end of this year Nintendo wants to have sold 4 million Nintendo Wii consoles and it looks like they are on track to reach that goal.
“All systems are go for reaching the 4-million target we have in our financials by December 31. We will sell everything we make so now it’s simply a manufacturing thing,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime at the Reuters media summit in New York.

Nintendo has already said that it had already shipped 600 thousand Nintendo Wii units in the Americas alone and with the December launch of the game console in Europe the company does seem to be on track with its shipments targets. Currently the firm hopes to sell two million of Wii game consoles in the Americas by the end of the year.
