Locked: Wii becomes the UK's fastest selling console ever

Forums - Sales Discussion - Wii becomes the UK's fastest selling console ever

Nintendo and Chart Track have announced that the Wii has become the fastest-selling videogames console ever in the UK, with 105,000 systems already sold. Last week, Nintendo announced that consumers snapped up 50,000 Wii units within 12 hours of the console going on sale. The tills continued to ring over the next two days, making the Wii the first console to sell more than 100,000 units during its opening weekend. In contrast, the GameCube saw sales of 52,000 consoles in the first weekend after launch, while the figure for Xbox 360 stood at 70,000 units and 87,000 for DS. Of the 14 software titles launching with the Wii, six made it into the all-formats top 40 - including Zelda, which debuted at number 5. Other popular titles included Wii Play and Ubisoft's Red Steel. It was also a great week for Nintendo's handheld, with around 110,000 DS units sold, and 14 games in the top 40.

Good news for the Wii and the DS. I heard they also sold 140.000 DSes here in france last week.



Inbelievable! Nintendo is at the top of its popularity all over the world! I think that we are finally back in the 90's



Now Loading... Please Wait!

Wow!! Those are some immense sales, and unlike most launches the sales will probably stay high over christmas rather than dropping away Also, 65-70k for Zelda



Belongs to PS4 now!
