Remember March 6th? That was the day the execs at Nintendo were likely running around, drinking a lot, and doing a general celebration. Why? The DS sold its official 100 millionth console worldwide. That’s a milestone, although just shy of the all time record.
In terms of history, that’s only two million short of the PlayStation, and 18 million shy of the original Game Boy (and Color). If you would consider the DSi to be one in the same, despite being a fairly radical revision, there’s almost no question including the new system in the same sales stat should push it over the edge toward the record.
