Wii reaches 1 million units sold in the UK

Nintendo's console becomes the fastest selling in UK video game history.

Nintendo has announced that Wii has passed the one million sales figure in just 38 weeks, some 11 weeks quicker than was achieved with the PlayStation 2 and 22 weeks faster than the Xbox 360.

Moving into the Christmas season, momentum for Nintendo's two gaming platforms shows no signs of slowing; for sales week 33 (week ending August 18) UK console shares for Wii and Nintendo DS Lite stood at 68% and 86% of the home and handheld markets respectively.
