WII is the daddy!

According to Chart Track, the Nintendo Wii has become the fastest selling console in UK history, hitting 1 million units sold in just under 38 weeks.

In comparison, the best selling console of last generation, the PlayStation 2, hit the 1 million mark in 50 weeks and the Xbox 360 took 60 weeks.

The same data means that the Wii now has a 68 percent market share of the UK console market and with continued excellent sales of the DS, an 86 percent share of the handheld market.

"The non-stop demand for Wii even in the traditionally slow sales periods for videogames in the UK is clearly behind this record breaking achievement," added the report.

"The performance of both systems appears to indicate that unprecedented interactive entertainment experiences, provided by a combination of the revolutionary nature of DS and Wii with the increasing number of unique software titles for the system from Nintendo and third parties, are being enjoyed by both avid and new gamers of all ages."
