Nintendo Wii Sells Over 2 Million Units in Australia

The Nintendo Wii has just hit 2 million units, and has done so in less time than the the Nintendo DS, making it the fastest console in Australian history to hit that figure.

Whereas the Nintendo DS took 52 months to hit 2 million units sold, the Nintendo Wii took five months less – hitting the same target in 47 months.

It’s a fresh piece of good news for Nintendo, who are currently on a downward trend when it comes to sales – understandable since they’ve sold such a huge amount of consoles to begin with.

The DS is currently sitting pretty at over 2.5 million units sold, and the PS2 managed to put up similar numbers. Time will tell if the Nintendo Wii will manage to hit the same lofty heights.
