DSi sales pass 3 million in Japan According to figures published by Enterbrain, Nintendo's DSi handheld console has sold more than 3 million units in Japan since its launch in November 2008. The latest version in the DS series was marked as having moved 3,062,920 units as of August 2, showing that the sales milestone for the device was achieved in nine months on the market.
In Nintendo's quarterly results published last week, the company noted that 3.65 million DSi units had been sold in the three months ending June 30th, part of the total 6.68 million units sold to date.

In the NPD figures for June 2009, a particularly bad month for the industry, Nintendo noted that 424,000 units of the total 766,000 DS units sold (representing more unit sales than all other consoles combined) were of the new DSi model.

Several days ago, Nintendo also announced the integration of Facebook into the DSi console via a firmware update, allowing users to upload pictures taken on the handheld gadget to a Facebook profile.
