Unbelievable how many DSs have been sold in Japan. Almost seems more of a cultural phenomenon than a handheld console. Congrats Nintendo =)

Wow 50 million. That's insane with how long it's been out for. Helps that it has not only games but teaching tools, maps, diction, even museums are using them for tours.

Nearly 20 million in Japan alone... my word and it's still selling strong!

I love DS :) Ninja Gaiden is going to own on it

Yea Ninja Gaiden does look pretty sweet for it. It'll be fun with the control method. The walkthrough they did looked like it's working pretty good so far. I can wait to see the finished project ^^

oh a disagree for everyone I see. Yea I guess you are right disagree'er. 50 million is cump change for the DS it'll only be happy once it gets 100+ million and becomes the fastest and best selling gaming machine ever. Cuz it's looking like it can reach that very easily.
