WII SALES ROCKET

STRONG Christmas sales for Nintendo’s Wii games console, revealed yesterday, helped allay fears that the popularity of the gadget has waned. Nintendo’s US Wii sales exceeded 3m units in December up sharply from 2.12m units a year earlier. Meanwhile, total sales of Nintendo’s handheld game player, the DS, have reached 40m units in Europe, making it the top-selling video game hardware ever in the region.
