With a couple years gone by since its release (has it really been that long already?), Nintendo issued word today announcing that the Nintendo DS has sold more than 21 million units since release on November 24th, 2004. The figure equates to 23 systems sold per minute since launch, and comes on the heels of Nintendo DS Lite launch.
"We're thrilled to be announcing this milestone today," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, "especially since Nintendo DS was North America's top-selling video game system of any type in June. We attribute this success to Nintendo's overall strategy of offering something for everyone -- from five-year-olds caring for their Nintendogs to 65-year-olds tuning their mental agility with Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day."
