50,000 more of this guy would do Nintendo nicely

According to Pocket Gamer, 3DS is on the cusp of hitting the 1 million sales mark in the United Kingdom.

The site claims the console sits just below 950k units after 61 weeks on shelves. By comparison, the original DS sold its first million after 51 weeks, so 3DS clearly still has some ground to make up.

Last year Nintendo of America revealed 3DS had beaten the DS's first year sales in just eight months, but that success hasn't been replicated in the UK. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata also said in April that Mario's UK presence is the smallest in the world.
