Also in June, Nintendo systems sold a combined 933,000 units, accounting for 50 percent of all gaming hardware units sold in the US. The Nintendo DS family systems topped the charts with more than 510,000 handhelds sold, bringing life-to-date unit sales to nearly 42 million.
Wii system sales totaled more than 422,000, closing in on a cumulative milestone of 30 million units sold in the US alone.
"Consumers continue to look to Nintendo for exceptional value and one-of-a-kind gaming experiences. Between games like Super Mario Galaxy 2, the pioneering motion controls of the Wii system and the portable fun of Nintendo DS systems, Nintendo offers something for everyone. As we prepare to launch a remarkable lineup of new games in the second half of the year, we are grateful that consumers are supporting Nintendo consoles to continue their run as the nation?s most popular game systems."
Cammie Dunaway, NoA VP of Sales & Marketing.
