(AP) Nintendo says it has sold more than 400,000 of its new video game console, the Wii U, in its first week on sale in the U.S.


The Wii U launched on Nov. 18 in the U.S. at a starting price of $300. Nintendo says the sales figure, based on internal estimates, is through Nov. 24.


Six years ago, Nintendo Co. sold 475,000 of the original Wii in that console's first seven days in stores. The original Wii remains available, and Nintendo says it sold more than 300,000 of them last week, along with roughly 250,000 handheld Nintendo 3DS units and about 275,000 of the Nintendo DS.


Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter estimates that Nintendo will ship 1 million to 1.5 million Wii Us in the U.S. through the end of January.
