More than 30 million Wii consoles have been sold across Europe, maker Nintendo has trumpeted.

Those numbers were totted the week ending Christmas Day - 25th December 2011.

That makes Wii the best selling current generation console in Europe.

European PS3 sales have passed 22 million units, Sony told MCV in August 2011.

European PS2 sales are apparently "well over" 50 million.

We can't find specific European Xbox 360 sales.

Nintendo also announced new worldwide Wii balance board sales of 41.98 million. The peripheral is bundled with Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. The sales split is 22.67 million for Wii Fit, and 19.31 million for Wii Fit Plus.

The Wii balance board had been awarded the coveted crown of best selling "personal weighing device" by the Guinness Book of Records. I wonder what the closest competitor was.

Wii Fit launched in Europe in April 2008. Eurogamer's Wii Fit review awarded 8/10.

Wii Fit Plus arrived in October 2009. And Eurogamer's Wii Fit Plus review awarded 7/10.
