Where? I don't see Sony owning anyone in home consoles today. Nintendo is KING of all consoles!!

The way you called DS a "mini" console instead of handheld makes u look kinda jealous and butthurt

Great milestone for Nintendo

Yeah, its crazy. I can only imagine how far the 3DS will go.

topgeareasy2832d ago

comparing it to the PS2 is a bit unfair since hardware of the ds improves over time.

Queasy2832d ago

They count the DS from the original phat DS to the DSi XL.

The PS2 came in different models too so it isn't all that different.

fat ps2 and the slim ps2..... thats it. I believe the DS has more since i remember buying one a week before a better version came out.

ask your self what can you do with the latest PS2 that you can't do with the first one then what can you do with the latest DS (not 3ds) that you can't do with the first one. see the difference.

Queasy2832d ago (Edited 2832d ago )

The Slim PS2 added a built-in ethernet port. On the downside, it removed support the for HDD.

Sony also upgraded the laser in later revisions and updated support for the PS1 games. All in all, there were 18 different versions of the PS2 (though not all made it to the US).

And need I mention the awesome PSX!?! Oh wait...I really don't need to. ;)

Yeah if you don't count worldwide sales then it does, to bad PS2 hasn't stop selling.

Marquis_de_Sade2832d ago

Well yes, it clearly states US only, what is your point?
