Officials from Nintendo UK have announced that 1 million units of its DS handheld have been sold in the United Kingdom to date, with many stores apparently reporting that they are sold out of new stock. Total European sales are put at almost 3.5 million, with, as previously revealed, approximately 13 million sold worldwide at the end of December. In addition, 1.6 million copies of Nintendogs have been sold in Europe since its launch in October and 800,000 copies of Mario Kart DS Europe since its launch in late November. The announcement comes only days after Sony Computer Entertainment Europe claimed that the PSP had outpaced sales of the Nintendo DS, despite having launched six months later. Sony’s figures use Chart-Track data, which does not include chain Toys ‘R Us – one of Nintendo UK’s most important retail outlets. Whichever console is technically in front, though, the total sales for both are clearly very close, which Nintendo UK will see as a minor victory in itself, considering the overwhelming popularity of the PlayStation brand in the United Kingdom.
