DS sales hit 21 million!

Monday 24 July 2006
Nintendo has today proudly announced that it has sold 21.27 million DS handhelds worldwide since its November 2004 launch.

The total includes sales of DS and DS Lite - the new, sleeker design of the dual-screened handheld - and equates to 23 systems per minute - that's nearly one every two seconds, non-stop since launch.

George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, stated that he was "thrilled to be announcing this milestone" and attributed the success to "Nintendo's overall strategy of offering something for everyone".
