Wii is on track to hit 4m target, says Fils-Aime

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said that the company is on track to ship 4 million Wii units by the end of the year - and could even exceed that figure.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said that the company is on track to ship 4 million Wii units by the end of the year - and could even exceed that figure.

Speaking at the Reuters Media Summit he said, "All systems are go for reaching the 4 million target we have in our financials by December 31. We will sell everything we make so now it's simply a manufacturing thing."

According to Fils-Aime, Nintendo could well beat its sales targes for the Wii - but he added that it would be "challenging based on manufacturing capacity".

During the summit, Fils-Aime also touched upon the subject of a much older Nintendo product - the GBA.

"We think that Game Boy Advance certainly has at least one more holiday season left in it," he said.

"For us, it continues to be a great stepping stone for five, six, seven year-old consumers to have their first great handheld gaming experience and then transition right into DS."

Fils-Aime said the GBA has enjoyed "just as good a selling season so far" as the Nintendo DS, with more third-party titles still to come over the next nine months.
