DS Sells More Than All Current Gen Consoles Combined

In the United States in June, the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems combined to sell more than 766,000 units, more than all current-generation consoles combined, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. U.S. consumers purchased more than 424,000 Nintendo DSi systems and more than 342,000 Nintendo DS systems in June.

Wii marked its 21st consecutive month as the top-selling U.S. home console, with nearly 362,000 sold. Consumers also snapped up nearly 374,000 Wii MotionPlus accessories, including nearly 205,000 packaged with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 from Electronic Arts and 169,000 additional accessories sold on their own. The Wii Sports Resort game launches July 26 and comes packaged with Wii MotionPlus.

"More consumers continued to gravitate toward products that offer quality experiences and great value for the whole family," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Consumers again selected Nintendo systems for those experiences, particularly our hand-helds."
