    Nintendo DS Lite Outsells PSP and PS2 Combined in Japan
    by GamePro Staff | 04/07/2006 | 15:00:54 PM PST

    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.

    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..

    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'

    Edit: Just found news that a black version has been announced for japan, can't find any good pics yet though

    the fourth picture is another nice innovation, its a plug for the gba slot so its not open collecting dust if there is not a game in there, it can be seen in place in the side shots.

    the last one reminded me of a couple other things they fixed:
    1. the volume slider is supposed to work better now (if you have the original you know what i'm talking about, i could only get about three volume levels out of it: off, too quiet to hear, and loud)
    2. the power button is now on the side(see next post for pic) and doesn't turn the unit off at the slightest touch (had that problem a couple times too when my thumb slipped past the d-pad)
    I think I will stick to my regular one, that one looks a bit dainty for my man-hands

    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.
