Wii sells 105,000 in record-breaking launch

It is the first time any console has broken the 100,000 mark over an opening weekend, and with handheld DS shifting around 110,000 in the same week, it tops off a bumper week for platform holder Nintendo.

The new format has trumped previous record-holder Microsoft’s launch weekend with Xbox 360, which saw 70,000 units sold.

While retailers remain hopeful that more stock is forthcoming, it seems Nintendo Wii is already off to a flying start.
