That's a lot of lost styluses
The 3DS just grew its sales again, but it's got a long way to go to prove itself a potent sales successor to the Nintendo DS, which just passed a whopping 50 million consoles sold in the U.S.
We all know that the DS hardware sells well, but games have been its big success too, with Nintendo on hand to reel off some handy droplets of information:
The 273 million software units sold for the Nintendo DS family equates to more than 107,000 games being sold per day, every day for almost seven years. More than 273 million units of software have been sold for the platform in the United States, including 24 of the top 25 and 43 of the top 50 best-selling portable games in this hand-held generation.
Fist bumps all around at Nintendo of America, then.
