"Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock," Fils-Aime said. "Retailers are also doing their best to get the product to store shelves. But as soon as product hits retail, they're selling out immediately."
The console will launch in Europe on November 30 and in Japan on December 8.
Pictures of a revamped Wii also trickled onto the Internet on Tuesday. The smaller, red Wii Mini will be out in time for Christmas in Canada. The console does not play GameCube titles and does not support online net access. It has a retail price of CAD$99.99, and it will include a Wii Remote Plus controller and Nunchuk controller.
