DS sells over 20 million in Japan


Media Create has revealed that Nintendo’s DS has sold in excess of twenty million units in Japan since its launch in December 2004.


Since launch, the DS and subsequently the redesigned DS Lite have accounted for 50.26 percent of the hardware market in the region, along with 83.95 million software units sold, or around 40 percent of the total software market.

Nintendo were unavailable for comment due to extended drunken celebrations taking place. Probably.
