Wii sales hit 22m in Europe

Nintendo releases new figures; DS hits 41m in EU

Nintendo has revealed that sales of its Wii console have hit 22 million in Europe.

To put that into context, sales of both PS3 and Xbox 360 are both at around 12 million each in Europe.

Meanwhile, Nintendo's DS has now reached 41 million sales in Europe.

Nintendo of Europe's MD Laurent Fischer told MCV: "In Europe, Wii lost some momentum in the first half of 2009.

"However, the strong software line-up in the latter half of the year helped it to regain momentum and total sales of Wii in Europe have now reached over 22 million."
