Thanks to GamesIndustry.biz for their article indicating that UK videogame retailers are showing extremely low sell-through
of Nokia's new N-Gage game deck in its launch week. Although US sales figures are still pending, "fewer than 500 units [were] sold by the 6,000 [UK] game stores polled by Chart-Track."
GI.Biz note that, though "these figures don't include sales from mobile phone stores, which might well be expected to shift a few units of the N-Gage, they still spell out something of a setback for Nokia's ambitions in the console space"
, since "Nintendo's Game Boy Advance hardware outsold the N-Gage by a ratio of almost 30:1."
