DS Sales Hit 151m Consoles and 890m Games
Posted by James Newton
The venerable old grandfather of touch screen gaming, the Nintendo DS, isn't quite ready to roll over and go quietly just yet.
In the past financial quarter Nintendo sold just over 2m consoles in the DS family, with 1.3m of those sales in the Americas. Financial year to date DS sales stand at 4.64m units around the world, with Nintendo revising its hardware target from 6m to 5.5m.
Software-wise, 22.21m DS games were sold through October to December, with the Americas again contributing over 50% of that figure. Since April DS software sales stand at 51.2m, with Nintendo changing its target from 62m to 59m.
Since the very first DS came out all those years ago, Nintendo has sold 151.06m consoles and 890.69m games.
