UK: DSi sells 92,000 units in first weekend


Following reports that the DSi is the fourth-fastest selling system of all time in the UK, MCV has now confirmed the numbers from GfK-ChartTrack and reports that the camera-sporting new handheld has sold a whopping 92,000 units over its launch weekend. GfK-ChartTrack UK director Dorian Bloch expects the launch will "very much stimulate" DS software sales, though he notes that there's no way to tell how many of the purchases were from first-time DS consumers. Still, Bloch states that the DS market it "primed for Easter" and the firm expects "big numbers."

You heard it folks, the hot Easter gift this year isn't candy and fake, plastic grass. It's DS games. You'd best not forget that, Mom.
