For those fanboys who care, here are some NPD statistics for the month of May 2009.
U.S. May 09 data:
Nintendo DSi 390,000
Nintendo DS 244,000
>31 million DS sold!
Total: 20 million
Apparently this reinforces its position as the fastest-selling console in history (31 months and counting).
“The continued enthusiastic consumer response to our products shows that Nintendo has something for everyone,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “For Nintendo, precision motion controls and social gaming are realities today. Upcoming games like Wii Sports Resort, launching at the end of July, and Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii, coming this fall and holiday, will give consumers even more amazing experiences to enjoy.”
