DS Hits 5 Mil in Japan

As reported by Reuters, the President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, has revealed that the Nintendo DS has sold a record 5.44 million units since release in Japan. That’s only 13 months after launch, making it one of the fastest selling systems in existence.

After a slow start, titles like Mario Kart DS, Animal Crossing, Kirby, Castlevania, and Nintendogs have lifted the DS above the competition.
