DSi sells 92,000 in two days

Update: Chart-Track data shows flying start for new Nintendo handheld

Nintendo's DSi handheld sold 92,000 units in its first two days on sale in the UK, GamesIndustry.biz can reveal.

Retailers across the country had reported impressive pre-order figures for the new console, a technical upgrade of the DS Lite complete with motion sensitive cameras and supported by an online store.

The new console went on sale on Friday, and figures from official Chart-Track data add clarity to yesterday's revelation that the machine managed to outsell all other console hardware in the region combined.

The DSi retails in the UK for GBP 149.99.

Update: Chart-Track has now revised its figures for the DSi launch, down from 103,000 to 92,000 units.
