The Nintendo DS set a sales record last week (between November 18 – 24), selling more than 653,000 units! The previous title holder? The Game Boy Advance, moving 600,000 for the same time period in 2005. Well done Nintendo, well done.
The Wii didn’t do half bad, either. The system sold roughly 350,000 units last week, the best selling week since the Wii launched last year.
“As shoppers look for ways to maximize their limited holiday spending money, they turn to gifts that can be used by the entire family,” Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications George Harrison said. “Wii and Nintendo DS offer something for every member of the family. They’re the most fun video game experiences at the most affordable price.”
I wonder what I would do with all that money. I would probably buy Thrasher that chopper he always wanted.
