Nintendo's Wii is the most searched for game console in the UK in the run-up to Christmas, according to a recent Internet study by data tracker Hitwise.
The Hitwise study found that three gaming consoles, Nintendo's Wii and DS and Microsoft's Xbox 360, made the top ten list of most searched for gadgets.
According to Hitwise UK research director Robin Goad, "Search term analysis provides great insight into people's habits and desires."
"The Nintendo Wii is the most searched for gaming console in the UK, ranking as the sixth most popular gadget heading into Christmas, ahead of the Xbox 360 at number 7 and the Nintendo DS at number 8. There were 5 times as many searches for the Nintendo Wii as the Sony PlayStation 3, which did not make the top 10 gadget list."
