Nintendo Wii sales hit 6 million in Europe Following Nintendo Japan's announcement that 5 million Wii units had been sold in the country, Nintendo Europe has revealed that sales of the Wii had reached 6 million and DS handheld sales had reached 20 million units.
The company also revealed that first party software sales for the region had been impressive, with four titles for the Wii blasting past one million units sold. "Wii Play" has sold 2.3 units while "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" and "Super Mario Galaxy" sold 1.3 million each. "Mario Party 8" just hit one million units sold.

DS games continued to sell very well with the "Nintendogs" series leading the pack with over 8 million units sold.

2008 Wii titles coming to Europe should also be hot sellers especially the upcoming "Wii Fit", "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" and "Mario Kart Wii". The last two titles are successors to blockbuster hits for past consoles.

Nintendo also revealed that for the 9 month period ending December 31st 2007, profit was $2.43 billion USD, almost double its 2006 profit.

thank god the fun has been brought back into gaming as i've just about had enough of doom and half life clones over the last 20 years!

i can see the appeal of the 360/PS3 to the kids but anyone over 30 would have seen it all before many times over.

*NOTE TO GAME DEVELOPERS*

better graphics do not make a good game or a game next gen!
