The holiday week of Thanksgiving and Black Friday is over and Nintendo has announced that they've sold 1.5 million in consoles during the week alone.

Thanks to the many Thanksgiving and Black Friday deals, 900,000 DS units as well as 600,000 Wii consoles were sold. Nintendo also announced the launch of new colours for the hardware including a Mario Red Wii and DSi bundle. Other colours include orange and green.

"US shoppers bought about 9000 Nintendo hardware systems non-stop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday," said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

"For the past several years, consumers have decided that Nintendo defined both top value and all-inclusive entertainment, and that sentiment continues again at the start of this shopping season."
