Software for Nintendo formats sold over 40m in 2008

While 2008's £4bn market boom comes thanks to the overall wider demographic served by the industry, ELSPA/GFK Chart-Track say that it was Nintendo which 'led the way' in growth during 2008.

Unit sales of games for the format-holder's Wii and DS platforms amounted to 40m in total.

Wii games sales were up 153 per cent in units to 20.1m units sold last year compared to 7.9m units sold in 2007.
