Nintendo recently released its current earnings report, and it's now safe to say that the Nintendo DS system has become the best-selling handheld video game system of all time.

According to Nintendo, the DS line of systems sold approximately 27.11 million units worldwide this year, bringing the total number of DS systems sold across the globe to 128.89 million units. That's quite a bit above and beyond the 119 million unit sales of their previously best-selling Game Boy line of systems.

With the recent announcement of their upcoming 3DS system, there's certainly no doubt that sales of the DS line of systems should taper off a bit, but it also means the 3DS has got quite a task in front of it if it's to ever have a shot at toppling the mammoth sales success of the Nintendo DS. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
