Nintendo DS Lite Outsells PSP and PS2 Combined in Japan

Nintendo's latest handheld system sells phenominal numbers in Japan
According to Japanese newspaper Mainichi, the DS Lite outsold the PSP and the PS2 combined in the month of March in Japan.
The Enterbrain figures show some interesting facets of the Japanese gaming industry. While the DS Lite sold 380,000 units in March, the original DS Lite weighed in with a robust 180,000 units sold. These figures are all the more impressive when you consider that Nintendo has struggled to keep both systems on store shelves. Without the shortages, these DS sales would be significantly higher.
Combined, the DS sales top out at over 560,000 units in Japan for the month of March alone.
In comparison, the PSP sold 150,000 units and the PS2 sold 140,000 units -- a total of 290,000 units, or just over half the number of units sold by the DS systems.
Funny videos. The third one was godly hilarious..Originally Posted by Evil Panda
its not that the ds isnt already the best system...but its just the simple fact that nintendo listens to its consumers and patched it up for people...i duno where they got the design but it looks like some apple work..Originally Posted by tuned
i have a theory...if nintendo doesnt take consoles the box will...if they box takes consoles sony and nintendo will team up (im sure neither are dumb enough to partner with someone like bill gates rofl..) and they will come out with some super guru stuff...i think this is more of a fantasy than anything but yea...just think of the great handhelds and console and how much faster theyll produce than microsoft....and..just the game merges...tomb raider on a nintendo....way cool. they could call it.....'nintendo and sony presents........syn'
i think i willjust stick with my normal NDS since it is pretty much the same
I think I will stick to my regular one, that one looks a bit dainty for my man-handsOriginally Posted by phimuajedi69
to each his own! though the hands on thing that is quoted everywhere on the web from some guy who work for a company that designs peripheral (specifically in his case, screen protectors) says the system feels 'solid' and it was a non working shell....so i don't think this system is going to really be that dainty.I think I will stick to my regular one, that one looks a bit dainty for my man-hands
