Nintendo sells 1m DSi handhelds in Europe
Older models selling well too
Nintendo’s DSi console has been bought by 1m Europeans since its launch around eight weeks ago, the games giant has announced.
The handheld console, which was released across Europe on 3 April, has also passed the 1m sales mark five weeks faster than its predecessor, the DS Lite, did when it was launched in June 2006.
Not everyone’s sold on Nintendo’s DSi, though. The firm also shifted 500,000 units of its various other DS models across Europe after the DSi's launch.
Nintendo hasn’t released any UK-specific DSi sales figures. But shortly after the DSi’s launch, market watcher Gfk-ChartTrack said British gamers had already bought just shy of 100,000 units. ®
Would like to see the breakdown..
Of pre-order "hyped" sales, and then the trickle back to regular sales numbers.
if they sold 900,000 on preorder, and then 100,000 across all of Europe in the last 8 weeks, that's REALLY bad....
