One-third of UK households own Nintendo Wii

Nintendo has announced that one in three UK households own a Wii games console.

Nintendo claimed that it sold as many as 8.3 million units of the Nintendo Wii since the games console was launched in the UK.

The sales figure citing by Nintendo was made public by music & software sales monitoring firm Chart Track. Considering the fact that the UK has around 25 million households, Nintendo’s claim just might be factual.

It is the broad range of family oriented video games as well as competitive pricing of the Wii games console that helped it become so much popular with Brits.
