47 million. That’s the number of Nintendo DS systems that Nintendo has sold since November 2004 making it the biggest selling system ever in North America. That total includes the original “fat” DS, the DS Lite, DSi, and DSi XL systems. Quite an impressive number but not shocking considering the wide audience of the device.
I wonder if the Nintendo 3DS sales will be included in that figure when it launches in March or will it start it’s own tally? We’ll see.
During 2010 Nintendo also reached another milestone, they sold more than 7 million Wii consoles in the U.S. for the third consecutive year.
