DSi say, you're selling well

It seems that Nintendo can't do any wrong these days. Their new DSi handheld was launched the other day to much fanfare, and its sales must be making the bigwigs back in Japan lick their lips while they wait for all that lovely money.

So far the new handheld has become the fourth fastest selling console of all time (with only the PS3, Wii and PSP doing better in its opening weekends), out stripping the original DS and DS Lite by some way. The success is even more impressive given that there are 5.6million of the previous iterations on the street already.

'It’s difficult to tell if the momentum will continue into the week, as much of the sales would have been pre-ordered,' said Chart-Track's Chris Poole. But with no DSi specific software even out yet, nor the much-vaunted DsiWare shows up Ninty will be laughing all the way to the bank. If it's still in business anyway.
