DSi hits 1 million in Europe

Milestone reached after just 8 weeks on sale

Nintendo has announced that the latest iteration of its handheld hardware, the DSi, has hit 1 million in sales across Europe since launch, just eight weeks ago.

That puts it five weeks ahead of the pace set by its predecessor, the DS Lite, which continues to sell strongly and posted 500,000 sales of its own since the DSi launched.

The key selling points of the latest hardware include the ability to download games directly to the console, and an on-board camera.
