Wii U: Multiple retailers report sell-out ahead of launch

Pre-orders empty launch allocations

Wii U has already sold out at multiple UK retailers.


A number of unnamed retailers told MCV that their launch allocation of the new console has been completely taken by pre-orders one week ahead of the Wii U release date of November 30 in Europe.

HMV is hosting the official Wii U UK launch event in London. The retail chain claims it has 'secured extra stock' to sell on the night without customers needing to pre-order the system.

CVG understands that on launch day there will be less than 30,000 consoles on sale across the UK - though Nintendo has a plan to replenish stock frequently.
