Wii outsells other consoles in UK during 2009


Since the beginning of January, Wii has sold almost 800,000 units in the UK while DSi has moved 370,000 and DS Lite pushed through 680,000.

Original numbers had caused some confusion when released by GAME compared to Chart-Track but now all has been reevaluated, and no longer do Nintendo console sales show a slow down.

For the year, here are the reevaluated numbers for lifetime sales units as of week 31:

  • Wii: 5.5 million
  • DS: 1.6 million
  • DS Lite: 7.5 million
  • DSi: 370,000

GI.biz has more on this, as well as a great explanation for all the confusion between the charts.
