40 million DS units sold in Europe

Along with 20 million Wii consoles, according to Nintendo

Nintendo has announced that the DS family of consoles has sold over 40 million units in Europe

The numbers come after last month's confirmation of 10 million sales in the UK alone, with Nintendo also adding that Wii sales have reached 20 million in the three year's since launch, making it the fastest-selling home console in the region.

According to Nintendo, 9.6 million Europeans have a copy of either Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus, and over five million copies of Wii Sports Resort have been sold since it launched in July last year.

The recently released New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which was released in November, has already sold over 2.5 million in Europe.
