XMNR: One of the interesting tidbits of news to come out the NPD December 2010 sales reports is the lifetime sales of the Nintendo DS. According to NPD, the Nintendo handheld has now passed Sony's very successful Playstation 2.
Wow. That impressive. I'm also aware its only "US" prices.
Well you mean DS is mini console, PS2 is home console. They are 2 differenth thing Nintendo owns mini consoles, sony owns home console
you are just jealous..,,
lol [STALKER]/-Shooter-/[Superman] /-Superman-
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.
comparing it to the PS2 is a bit unfair since hardware of the ds improves over time.
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.
SoSly In the Uk there was the - Fat PS2 Slim PS2 Super Slim PS2
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.
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.
Well yes, it clearly states US only, what is your point?
And 3DS will probably go further.
This is a sad day for gaming...
How is it a bad day? two great system selling well and it is actually a good day for gamers to see the gaming industry still going XD
why? cause MS cant be nowhere near that list with nintendo and sony?
Congrats to Nintendo, I only have one DS and one ps2 and the DS cost me more than ps2 when I bought it so this is a serious win. Great systems... DS will do it worldwide this year pretty easy.
well the launch price of the ps2 was 299 here in the US and the ds I think was 199, maybe that made a difference? anyways there is no point comparing a handheld to a home system, but both r gr8 systems anyways so it doesnt really matter.
DS released 2004 $149.99 and went up to $169.99 and $189.99 ps2 released 2000 $299 and stayed at $149 from 2004 and it's longest running pricepoint...now $99 and ds lite $129.99 right?
yea ur right, but the portable gamers didnt have an alternative to the ds, well psp but for console ps2 , there was so much competition such as the ps3, wii, 360, original xbox, gamecube so the console owner had many more options, while for the portable gamer, it was either psp or ds.
im sure that it being easily pirated didnt help with sales lol
Not surprising at all. Parents buy their children each their own DS all the time. It's not a rare site to see people leaving game stores with 2+ DS's. A great feat either way.
