wiiThanks to the past holiday, Nintendo announced they’ve sold 650,000 Wiis during the past two weeks. The Big N sold 350,000 last week and 300,000 the previous week.

In accordance with the sales figures, Nintendo is on track to sell 17.5 million Wiis once the company hits its next fiscal year starting on March 31st. While Nintendo increased its Wii production to 1.8 million units per month, retail stores will hit shortages till the new year begins.

Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America President, said, "Nintendo has ramped up production to about 1.8 million per month, but its manufacturers cannot increase production again. I couldn’t find a single Wii system on the shelves – literally as I was walking into a Wal-Mart at 11 a.m., someone was walking out with the last one. Consumers are buying every game we can put into the system."

Fils-Aime also revealed that the world sales breakdown was 40% in North America and Latin America, 35% in Asia and Japan and 25% from Europe and the Middle East.
