DS Lite sells 7 million in Europe

I love the smell of DS Lite sales figures in the morning. Ahh. This time it’s Europe, to the tune of 7 million units sold! That’s right, I said SOLD, not SHIPPED.

“The worldwide total for the console was put at 26.82 million in October, with the Japanese userbase currently estimated at 11.5+ million and the Americas at 7.5+ million.

In addition to the new hardware total, Nintendo also revealed that a total of six different Nintendo DS games had now sold more than one million units in Europe alone. These were Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain? (aka Brain Age), Animal Crossing: Wild World, New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart DS, which has sold over 1.5 million copies.”

In the words of Mel Brooks, it’s good to be the king.
