Nintendo DS sales pass 10 million in North America Nintendo has announced that the total sales of the DS handheld console have passed 10 million units in North America. The company says that this means 9 units were sold every 60 seconds since the DS launch in November 2004. The dual-screen handheld which rivals Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) console, played a huge part in Nintendo's 40% rise in quarterly profits.
Worldwide, the total number of DS sales has topped 35.6 million. That figure breaks down as 14.4 million in Japan, 10.2 million in the United States and Canada and 11 million in other territories. The company also announced more than 20 software titles for North America. First party titles include Hotel Dusk: Room 215, Diddy Kong Racing DS and Wario: Master of Disguise.
