DS about to become World's Best Selling Console

Written by pikaby

After many long years the PS2's sales record is about to be shattered by a console 5 times smaller and less powerful that it. Nintendo DS isn't just another games player, it's a phenomenon.

While DS sales have obviously slowed over the past few months(in Japan, at least), that doesn't stop its figures from climbing higher and higher and higher. It already bested the Game Boy's lifetime sales just a week ago, and if current trnds continue, the PS2 shall fall to the dual-screened handheld.

Not bad for a little thing like it.(stands at 129 million as of the end of March)

Oh, and DS lifetime sales are combined from all sales of the original model, the Lite, the DSi and the DSi XL. Don't try to tell me that's cheating- every other console has had at least one remake in its lifetime. Even the PS2.
