Nintendo Shifted A Boatload Of Hardware Last Week In US
Posted by Jon Wahlgren
Over 1.5 million units bought between bites of turkey
Last week was yet another good time to be Nintendo as the company reports on selling around a hojillion hardware units in the US.
According to the company's internal tracking numbers, over 1.5 million Wii and DS/i systems combined were sold during Thanksgiving Week. If you want to get all micro, that's more than 150 systems every minute for a week. Even more microscopic measurements put that at one sold every 2.5 seconds.
Of the 1.5 million-ish, Nintendo reckons more than 550,000 units were Wiis. The DS and DSi, then, shifted over a million units, likely helped by some neat-o bundles.
Did you snap up any Nintendo hardware last week?
