Sales numbers released recently by NPD Group reveal that in June, the Nintendo DS portable outsold all other gaming systems of any type in the U.S. With sales boosted by the DS Lite, total sales for the system account for more than a third of June’s purchases in that category, nearly 600,000 units. One of the system’s titles, “New Super Mario Bros.” achieved top-selling game status for the second month in a row with 450,000 units sold. The adoption rate for the DS’s exclusive wireless gaming network, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, is also at an industry-best, topping that of any other system in history with 1.7 million users acquired in eight months. George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications, beams, “Nintendo DS is the only game system available a year ago that showed growth over the same period, and it did so in overwhelming fashion, with a leap of 426 percent.”
