Nintendo sold over 2.5 million DS systems and more than 2.3 million Wii systems. Talk about impressive! This puts them as the top console seller, with the top 2 most purchased consoles belonging to them. According to Nintendo’s senior director of Corporate Communications, “Nintendo has sold more game systems than anyone else for five years running.” It’s nice to the Japanese gaming company with a 5-year track record; now let’s see how long they can maintain it. This year, Nintendo will be banking on their soon to be released 3D console – the Nintendo 3DS, a console that can display 3D graphics without the use of special glasses. With Sony also rumored to release the PlayStation Portable 2 this year, and the smartphone market slowly eating into the console market’s share, it’s going to be a challenging year ahead.
