DS has potential to be best-selling interactive entertainment platform ever

The portable gaming market has exploded with worldwide revenues expected to exceed $10 billion in 2007 and Nintendo’s DS is leading the way. David Cole, an analyst with DFC Intelligence, says:

The DS has the potential to be the best-selling interactive entertainment platform ever.”

I guess it really does print money. To be honest, when I first saw the DS I never thought it was going to take off until games like Nintendogs and Brain Training came along. He also says:

Under the right scenario, by 2011 the combined installed base of the DS and PSP could exceed that for the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360.”

Is portable gaming becoming more important than at-home gaming?
