It seems as though for the time being, the premier choice for gamers around the world is Nintendo. Nintendo DS and Wii have captured a broad audience and they don’t look like they will show signs of slowing any time soon. Here is what 1up has to report.

Nintendo shareholders must be pleased, as the companies premiere products, Wii and Nintendo DS, continue to experience ridiculous sales numbers.
In a financial report released today, the company detailed the successes of both platforms so far, announcing Wii has sold 5.84 million units worldwide since launch and Nintendo DS continues trailblazing with a whopping 40 million hardware units — 23 million this year alone — in gamer’s hands.

Software sales are equally as impressive: New Super Mario Bros. with 9.5 million, and the brain training series at 12 million in total, 8.08 sold this year.

With the inevitable release of title like Mario, Pokemon (already out in Japan), Metroid and Super Smash Bros., this looks to be another stellar year. Game ON!
