50,000 Wiis sold in UK

That's, er, one per second.

Following the launch of the Wii across Europe at Midnight last night, Nintendo UK has reported that 50,000 units of the console were sold in just 12 hours.

That equates to one sale every second, according to Nintendo - much to the satisfaction of UK boss David Yarnton.
