Nintendo Wii becomes the fastest-selling console ever

The Nintendo Wii has sold over 50 million units according to the company's boss Satoru Iwata. The news means that the Wii is the fastest-selling console in the history of home video games.

It looks as if Nintendo and Mr Iwata can do no wrong with the DS shifting over 100m units globally. "Almost no one expected them to reach the current level of mainstream acceptance. It's even beyond what we possibly hoped for," the Nintendo president said.

"The market has expanded as videogames have been accepted by more consumers than ever before," Iwata added.
