The Nintendo train just keeps on rollin'!
In only the 14 weeks the DSi has been available in Australia, the total amount sold has already hit 100,000. Now for a population of 21 million, that's already 1 in every 210 people (which for a country like ours is a pretty high impact rate in such a short time!).
Here's more from Nintendo of Australia.
Independent market research group GfK Retail and Technology Australia confirms that the latest hand held console from Nintendo, Nintendo DSi(TM) has sold through more than 100,000 units in only 14 weeks.
