Nintendo DS has sold more than 47 million in the United States since its release.
According to Nintendo's internal sales figures, the Nintendo DS has sold more than 47 million in the United States since the original model launched in November 2004, making it the United States' best-selling video game system of all time.
A second milestone was also reached in 2010 with the Wii marking its third consecutive calendar year with U.S. sales of more than 7 million - a feat never before accomplished in the history of video games by a home console. To date, Nintendo has sold more than 34 million Wii systems in the United States alone.
Nintendo is set to release its new Nintendo 3DS hand-held system in the United States in March. The new iteration of the DS system is unique in that it lets players see 3D content without the need for special glasses. We at Monsters & Critics have had hands-on time with the 3DS and we can confirm that it works as promised.
