Nintendo Wii Presale Starts Tomorrow
Just as it did with the PlayStation 3, GameStop announced today that on October 13, it will accept a limited number of pre-orders for the much-anticipated Nintendo Wii. The retailer expects the limit to be reached very quickly, most likely in only minutes, and no additional pre-orders will be allowed. The reservation fee is $50.
Nintendo expects to supply 4 million Wii systems to stores by the end of the year, and GameStop with its EB Games subsidiary has 3,600 stores nationwide. On Tuesday, the company rapidly went through its pre-order quota of PS3 consoles. However, the initial supply of units from Nintendo will likely be far higher than that available from Sony.
