DSi the fourth fastest-selling console in UK based on weekend sales
GfK-ChartTrack data shows that the DSi is now the fourth fastest-selling console in the UK. The system, which launched in Europe on Friday, managed to outsell the PSP, PS3, and Xbox 360, and original DS based on weekend sales.
“It’s a very impressive opening couple of days considering the lack of launch software. It’s the fourth fastest-selling console in UK history in terms of opening weekend – one ahead of the original DS in fifth and way ahead of DS Lite. It’s difficult to tell if the momentum will continue into the week, as much of the sales would have been pre-ordered. There was also a slight spike in DS software.” – GfK-ChartTrack’s Chris Poole
