Amazon Label Wii Fastest Seller Ever

We all know the Wii is a very popular product at the moment but according to Amazon it is their fastest selling preorder ever! The console was made available to pre-order on the morning of November 21 and within seven minutes the entire launch allocation was sold out.

The speed of the console hitting sold out status caused James Schall, video game manager for Amazon UK to comment “We expected a high number of people to visit the site but the response was phenomenal, it’s the fastest-selling pre-order item we have ever encountered – even eclipsing Harry Potter and Coldplay.

Incase you are living under a nice highly decorated rock we will remind you that the Wii goes on sales in across the UK on December 8, priced £179.99.
