I thought 90% of DS's were hacked? Who's buying these games?

How can sales be up when 90% of the DS's in the US are running pirated stuff. I mean Nintendo has sold around 20 million units in the US so only 2 million of them are legal according to those figures. Thats half the installed base of the PS3 in the US. I guess as most of us knew that statement yesterday was a flaming pile of bull.

Not you or I, but look at what games EA released on the DS. The more casual crowd is buying EA games en masse it seems.
