Nintendo today announced via a press release that 3.19 million Wii consoles were sold during 2006.
Previously, Nintendo had predicted it would sell 4 million during the same period but were quick to clarify that they had in fact produced that amount and were still in the process of shipping the remainder to stores. They still hold plans to ship 6 million by the end of this financial year (end of March).
Wanting to boast over more figures, they revealed that more than 1.4 million Wii units had been taken online since launch with more than 1.5 million Virtual Console titles downloaded. Not to be outdone by their cheaper counterparts, there was also confirmation that three Wii titles had sold over 1 million units (we assume a certain Hylian dressed in green is responsible for one of those titles).
As for Wii's little brother, the DS, it was revealed that 13 DS software titles had reached over 1 million units sold during the first nine months of the financial year. 3.5 million unique DS owners had also played using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service.
