DSi Selling Like Hot Cakes In Europe

Posted by Damien McFerran

One million served since launch

Nintendo has confirmed that its DSi console has shifted a million units since it's European launch at the start of April.

It's taken a mere eight weeks for the new hardware to clock up this impressive amount of sales. To put this success into perspective, its predecessor the DS Lite took 13 weeks to hit the same target.

Speaking of the DS Lite, the launch of the DSi has seemingly done little to dent its popularity. During those aforementioned eight weeks, the older console has sold half a million units. Not too sloppy.

At least the proper console still selling even if Nintendos stopgap system making money.
Still I be waiting for Nintendo to announce a DS successor but in the mean time I might save up to add to the sales of the DS lite to replace my current system which is close to falling appart.

I wonder what percentage of the is the UK where it goes like:
DS Lite - £100
DSi - £150
used DS Lite (GAME, Gamestation) - £60

Probably like 40% becuase UK consumers are idiots which will buy anything the market team shove in their face (except Punch-Out since said marketing team made it look like Wii sports boxing)

I'm very happy the DSi is posting such good numbers! I for one am enjoying mine very much.
@Kawaiipikachu: Why do you hate the DSi so much? If your current lite is ready to break, why don't you just get a DSi? it's worth it for DSiware alone which is starting to pick up in quality. Plus there is a good chance that Nintendo will be revealing a DSi VC very soon.
