The Nintendo DS is officially the biggest-selling games platform in Europe after latest figures revealed how far ahead the handheld console is.

For the week ending October 21, the DS sold 171,260 units, which is way in front of all other platforms on the market.

In second place, the Nintendo Wii sold 70,322 units, then came the PlayStation 3 having shifted 64,087 consoles.

The PlayStation 2 managed a very respectable 57,152 consoles sold, while the Portable PlayStation sold 54,449 units.

Most surprising was that Microsoft's Xbox 360 was bottom of the ladder, shifting just 37, 303 consoles in the week.

Its bottom placing is predicted to be short-lived, however, after Microsoft announced the release of the cheaper Arcade bundle, which goes on sale this Friday.
