Nintendo DSi is hot seller in the UK According to the latest figures from GfK-ChartTrack, the new Nintendo DSi sold 92,000 units in the UK in its first 48 hours of availability, making it the fourth fastest selling UK console ever. The numbers even "eclipsed" the debut figures of the original "fat" DS in the region.
The numbers say that the DSi managed to outsell all other consoles in the region, combined, for those two days.

The handheld is only a nominal update, in terms of hardware, from the DS Lite, but more prominently uses an online store to sell games and applications.

Initially launched in Japan, the DSi sold over 500,000 units in its first month of availability there.

Last month, Nintendo announced that the DS had hit a new milestone, 100 million units sold globally.
