The Nintendo Wii has become the fastest selling console ever in the UK. Nintendo managed to sell 1 million Wii consoles in 38 weeks.

The Wii outsells the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 2-to-1 in the UK.
The supply situation of Nintendo Wii consoles seems to also be better in the UK compared to the U.S.. Amazon UK has the standard Wii console in stock for £179.99.The US Amazon store has very seldom stock of the Wii.

Overall Nintendo plans to ship 16.5 million Wii consoles by March 31 2008 globally. It is still a long way for Nintendo to reach Sony's record selling Sony PS2. In 7 years Sony sold the PS2 115 million times and it is still going strong.
