Wii launched in Europe

December 8, 2006

The Nintendo Wii has finally launched all over Europe! Though there are no details as to how many units were sold, it seems shortages are rampant everywhere. In Paris, France for example, there was bigger hype about the Wii than the Xbox 360 last year. In London, England, almost all Wiis were sold, and it will be impossible to get a system until January. This all happened at the pre-launch event(s), so if you are in London now, then chances are you won’t be able to find a Wii anywhere (except eBay) on launch day! Long lines plagued pre-launch events everywhere, such as the Virgin Megastore in Paris (pictures [url=http://www.jeux-france.com/news18392_lancement-de-la-wii-a-paris.html]here[/url]), and at the HMV on Oxford Street in London as well. Happy gaming everybody!
