A third of UK homes own a Wii, says Nintendo


Nintendo has released some Wii stats in the UK, claiming that one in three British homes own the console.

The independent figures from Chart-Track brought together the number of Wiis sold in the UK and the number of households - according to the 2006 Census, that's 24.9 million households.

The figures have also concluded some possible sales numbers for the big N in the UK, with 8.3 million Wiis sold and 11 million DS units bought. Chart-Track normally doesn't provide sales numbers.

The info comes as Nintendo announced which celebs will be fronting its winter ad campaign, with Ant and Dec, Sir Terry Wogan and Jedward - help us, Jebus - plus more, signed up.
