Nintendo’s Wii U console sold around 40,000 units in its first 48 hours on sale in the UK, MCV understands.
Retail sources suggest that effectively amounts to a complete sellout on the UK High Street. Stock is continuing to filter through to retail at a trickle but abundant supplies are not expected until the New Year.
Undoubtedly sales could have been considerably higher had stocks have been more plentiful.
Furthermore, MCV understands that the console has enjoyed a software attach rate in excess of 2:1.
The figures were arrived at through a combination of feedback from retailers and software sales data passed on by trade sources. Using this MCV was able to extrapolate estimated sales based on the previously confirmed Wii U bundle market shares. UPDATE: These numbers exclude digital software sales from Nintendo's eShop.
