Wii U Shortage in the United States Eliminated by Black Friday
There will be enough consoles to go around for the Christmas shopping period
The Nintendo of America division of the video game hardware maker and publisher says that it will make sure that enough Wii U home consoles are available for sale in the United States, both for the rapidly approaching Black Friday and for the Christmas shopping period.Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of NOA, is quoted by VG247 as saying that, “There will be some available – not only for Christmas. We’ll have more available on Black Friday in retail locations.”
Reports coming from various retail stores in the United States say that those who pre-ordered were able to pick up their new home console and add that new buyers have trouble locating new Wii U consoles in stores.
The device has been available since November 18, with a launch slate of 24 titles, and will be offered on November 30 in Europe and on December 8 in Japan.
