The Nintendo Wii has now sold over 2 million Wii hardware units in Japan as of April 13, Famitsu publisher Enterbrain reported today.
The Wii reached the milestone in about 19 weeks, not quite beating the speedy sales of the PlayStation 2, which sold the same amount in the 15 weeks after its launch.
Nintendo had a rather soft start in the region with only 400,000 units available for launch in Japan because of shortages. But the company managed to sell a million units during 2006 in the region and sales are expanding.
At the same time, the Wii managed to already pull off a couple million-seller titles with “Wii Sports” (which isn’t bundled with the Wii in Japan) and “Hajimete no Wii”.
The Wii has sold in excess of 2.5 million units in North America and more than 2 million in Europe, bringing the worldwide grand total to over 6.5 million units.
