Nintendo have announced
that they've been doing OK with their latest handheld:
Nintendo delivers on its promise to bring video gaming to the masses. In less than two years since its Nov. 21, 2004 launch, Nintendo has sold more than 21 million Nintendo DS(TM) systems worldwide. By comparison, Apple(R) shipped one million of its ever- popular iPod(R) music players in its first 19 months. The rate of Nintendo DS units being sold equates to 23 systems per minute -- that's nearly one every two seconds -- non-stop since launch.
According to Bloomberg
, the DS is selling almost double the amount of any other gaming device - including, presumably, the Sony's PlayStation Portable.
