"No company can match" Nintendo Games

Nintendo Mario and first party successMSN Money explores the importance of Nintendo first-party titles to the success of the DS and upcoming Wii. From the article: “DS is a game console that has become a mainstream success basically on the back of the software sold by the console provider. In Japan, Nintendo has sold more than 21 million units of DS games — the second-biggest DS software supplier has moved only 2 million units. Usually, console vendors have to grovel for the support of third-party game developers in order to gain strong sales of their game consoles, but Nintendo has the ability to sell 50 million units of its portable consoles on the back of its own game development. That’s an edge no company can match.”
