Nintendo Sold 1.5 Million Systems Last Week

I think the headline says it all to be honest.  Nintendo sold a stunning 1.5 million system last week.  That’s 900,000 DS systems and 600,000 Wiis.  Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime had the following to say about the incredible sales…

U.S. shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday. For the past several years, consumers have decided that Nintendo defined both top value and all-inclusive entertainment, and that sentiment continues again at the start of this shopping season.

Can you blame him sounding so sincere about his company’s position?  Nintendo has mopped the floor with Microsoft and Sony this generation.  That’s something virtually no one expected to happen.  It just proves, we’re not always right ;)
