The DS lite prints money. That is a firm fact. According to GameStop, they have recorded third quarter sales of just over US $1 billion (EUR 779 million), up from US $534.2 million (EUR 416.6 million) from the previous year.
Strong sales of the DS lite and Xbox360, as well as consistent sales from the Playstation 2 have contributed to its success.
The retailer recorded profits of US $13.6 million (EUR 10.6 million), up from a loss of US $2.5 million (EUR 1.9 million) for the same period in 2005, attributed to consumers waiting for the launch of the Xbox 360.
