Nintendo Sells a DS Every Five Seconds

This fun piece of trivia does more than make you the life of the party when playing "trivial pursuit". It indicates just how popular the Nintendo DS really is. Nintendo claims that they have sold over six million Nintendo DS units in America this year, citing internal estimates. There also seems to be no slowdown of sales in sight. The Nintendo DS is extremely popular to both the casual and hardcore gamer, and Nintendo fully intends to propel that momentum into 2008.

To further increase your trivial pursuit scores, these recent sales figures indicate that the sale of a Nintendo DS happens more than...
  • A bad car accident (those happen once every 14 seconds)
  • A man making a sexual advance on a woman (that happens once every seven seconds)
  • Two or more script kiddies having a "flame war" on internet message boards over the previously mentioned console (which happens once every six seconds).

You'd have to be a complete fool to buy a DS for 130$ when the PSP costs 170$.
Why? Sure the PSP is more advanced hardware, but what does it give me? I haven't heard about a single game on the PSP that I'd be interested in. While the DS has brain training, and tons of simple short games for pick up and play. Sure, the pricetag is steep, but it's the price of entertainment, and which will entertain me more? Probably the DS. Would I ever buy one? No, but that doesn't stop me from playing with my cousin's when I visit.

Its time for Nintendo to either drop the price of the DS to $99 or come out with another new version. I would love an even thinner and brighter DS to replace my original DS.:laugh::laugh:

Edit can't wait for the next Advance Wars to come out this Spring:rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout: :rockout:

sure, it's preference, but my preference is the same as a lot of the gamers I know. I've yet to hear of any hype around a PSP game, or hear from the few owners I know, of games that they really enjoyed. Even so, my personal preference seems to coincide with the millions who are buying the DS, so, laugh all you want.
