Nintendo confirms end of production for popular console relates only impacts Japan.
When Nintendo announced earlier this week that Wii production in Japan had ended, it was unclear if this would affect availability in the United States.
As it turns out, this announcement was related only to Japan. Wii availability in the United States will not be impacted, a Nintendo of America representative told GameSpot today.
"The announcement that the Wii console has been discontinued is specific to Japan," the representative said. "There is no change in the status of Wii in the United States, and it is available for purchase this holiday season."
The Wii, which has already sold over 100 million units across the world, is entering its eighth holiday season on the market. The systems starts at $130 for a bundle that includes Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort.
A preowned Wii system will go for $50 at GameStop on Black Friday in the United States, according to a recently leaked advertisement from the retailer.
