Forget Dr. Pepper, wouldn’t you like to be Nintendo too? According to figures provided by GfK-ChartTrack, Nintendo’s new DSi handheld passed 92,000 units in just two days of sales in the UK. That ranks the DSi number four under the “fastest-selling-UK-console-ever” column. Says UK biz-site MCV, the DSi’s sales performance even roared past the debut sales figures of the original DS.
Pretty impressive for a relatively nominal update to the existing DS, with an only 8% larger screen, 12% thinner form factor, dual 0.3 megapixel cameras, and a few notable downgrades (battery size from 1000mAh to 840mAh, battery life from 15-19 to 9-14 hours, and the demise of a backward GameBoy compatibility slot).
