Japanese Nintendo fanboys and fangirls got their Wii today. Of course the lines infront of electronics stores where long.

Nintendo said to have 400,000 Wii consoles for the Japanese launch. I assume they are gone by now. The line in front of the Bic camera started Friday and at the end apparently 2,000 people have been standing in line according to Game Watch (Japanese). The Bic store hat 7,000 reservations. There is no information on how many Wii consoles the store had available. Europe is finally getting the Wii next Friday.
Kotaku, Game Watch (Japanese) and Engadget have a good coverage with photos of the Japanese Nintendo Wii launch. More Nintendo Wii News.
