Amazon.com on Tues. restocked Nintendo Co.'s Wii and quickly sold out within minutes.
The online retailer made available the Wii console at 9 a.m. PST and sold out to eager buyers in about 12 minutes.
The brisk sales allowed Wii to rank No. 5 in the best-selling Computer & Video Games division. Products in the top five products include the Wii Nunchuk controller, Wii Remote, and Wii Play.
Wii was the best-selling video hardware in Jan., outperforming Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 and Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 by a large margin.
