Even with the UK not celebrating Thanksgiving last week, the DS still broke sales records there. Coming off the news this morning that Nintendo saw amazing sales in the States last week, ChartTrack data says the DS sold 191,000 units in the UK. That is allegedly more than any other hardware format has achieved in a seven-day period.

The previous record was held by the PSP during its launch in Sept. of '05, where it sold 185,000 units. Oddly enough, there's no real explanation given for the DS surge. Any UK folks have an explanation?
