Does Nintendo's DS also print Japanese humans to buy it?

What they're not telling us, is that the japanese version comes with a complementary dildo, or fleshlight, for rumble feedback purposes.

yeah, but people are only buying DS lites because their launch ones broke!*

DS really does own Japan - the commutes to work are fantastic, its like every second person is playing DS. If this carries over to Wii then i think the japanese flag might replace the red sun with Marios ass.

Collect the colors! Pokemon trained them well. Gotta buy'em! Gotta buy'em ALL!

Seriously, these guys have to be buying multiple systems. I have a hard time believing there are giant throngs out there waiting for a new color before they dive in.

the ds has sold what, around 6 million DSes in Japan? To put things in perspective, Japan's population is estimated at around 128 million people - therefore I doubt people are buying multiple systems.

look at those people in line, they don't exactly scream new DS owner to me. I bet 50%+ of that line has either a DS fat or another color lite already

seeing nintendo's strategy play out has been a thing of beauty, it's awe-inspiring! :)

every single step of the way nintendo has been right on the money, except i doubt even they expected such demand.

the way they launched the console for the hardcore then introduced new, simple, broad appeal games to draw in new gamers, then slowly weened them onto the next step and the next, is the way you expand a market and also draw those people in who stopped playing. not ridiculous convergence strategies which don't address the reason why people aren't playing games in the first place, i.e. the actual games.

still, the funniest thing is nintendo has been so open about their strategy, explaining it at every opportunity. though, their real might is in the fact they're probably the only developer who could actually create these games, in the sense they have this uncanny ability to know what millions of people will enjoy playing time and time again.

hat's off, well done. let's see what you can do with wii :D

i'm not sure what you're point is, regardless, i don't think it matters the way the ds sw is selling.

even if people are buying a new colour the sw sales indicate their old ones are still active, probably given/sold to family or friends.

Insane.

Seriously. As soon as DS sales taper off in 3 more years they announce the DS Advance. Wash, rinse, repeat.
