The Wii is apparently the fastest-selling console in UK history with 1 million units sold in 38 weeks. The PS2 took 50 weeks to achieve the mark and the Xbox 360 around 60 weeks. According to Chart Track, the Wii controls 68% of the console market and the DS hold 86% of the handheld market.
Wii sales continue to stay strong around the globe, despite supply issues caused by manufacturing problems. We're just wondering what the Wii numbers would be at right now if there weren't all these supply issues. At least Wii owners got a refreshing glass of Metroid this week to quench their parched gamer soul.
