Nintendo Sees Strong Home Performance

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Reports confirm Nintendo's dominance for handhelds in the Japanese market.

After reports late last month suggesting DS out selling PSP by 2 to 1, a new report shows that four of the top 5 selling games in 2005 were for the Nintendo DS.

"Animal Crossing: Wild World was the best-selling game of the year, with 2.34 million units shifted. PS2 title Final Fantasy XII, which sold 2.05 million units, was in second place, followed by brain exercise games Nou o Kitaeru Otona DS Training and Motto Nou o Kitaeru Otona DS Training - selling 1.85 million and 1.7 million units respectively. And finally, Mario Kart DS sold 1.21 million copies, placing it in fifth position."

That's pretty impressive really, when you consider how well established the PlayStation 2 is within the Japanese market, the DS has performed far better than this reported ever expected.

Now, lets bring on the Revolution.
