Quick Update: This just in, Nintendo has sold over 8 million Wii systems worldwide in less than seven months! For all of those keeping score, this out paces PS3 and 360 for the respective periods.

My question is this; If the Wii was more readily available, how many units do you think they would already have sold through?
