DS sets new U.S. sales record Nintendo has announced that the DS/DSi handheld has set a new sales record in the U.S., selling 1.71 million units for the month of November, beating out the previous record of 1.57 million set also by the DS earlier this year.
Additionally, the Wii also surpassed 23 million lifetime sales for North America.

"Nintendo products top Amazon.com's Most Wished-For and Most Gifted lists for videogames, and Wii remains at or near the top of the most-searched for videogame terms on Yahoo!," adds Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive VP of sales and marketing. "As families and friends gather for the holidays, Nintendo games offer the best shared experiences."

The New Super Mario Bros. continues strong software sales as well.
