Outstanding sales of Nintendo consoles in Europe

December 14, 2006

Since it’s launch last Friday through Sunday, over 325,000 Nintendo Wii systems were sold across Europe. This means that the Wii has become the fastest selling (non-handheld) system in the old continent. Obviously there are shortages, pretty much everywhere, but Nintendo confirmed they are working on remedying that soon. Also, half a million Nintendo DS Lites were sold in the past week, bringing the total to 8.5 million Nintendo DS systems sold in Europe to date.
