Last week at the European launch, Nintendo sold more than 325,000 Wii consoles in the first two days of availability.
Shops across Europe sold out of Wii consoles, but Nintendo says that it is shipping daily to replenish stock.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess proved to be a favorite, with 240,000 copies snapped up over launch weekend in Europe, representing 74% of all hardware purchasers. Wii Play was also a big hit with over 50% of people buying the game (which includes a Wii Remote) along with their Wii console.
Tim Ellis, Head of Games, HMV UK commented on the launch, “The demand for Wii has been truly amazing, and the official launch at our Oxford Street store was one of the biggest events we've ever staged there. HMV has received a huge amount of customer pre-orders - beyond anything we've ever seen before, including from family shoppers as well as dedicated Nintendo gamers.
