The Nintendo DS is doing quite well. Nintendo needs to start getting some new software on shelves if people are going to take this system seriously.

I almost thought Donkey Kong would bomb. Nice to see it picked up this week in a big way.

Go Go MGS3!

So the GC ends this year at 696,839 units sold.

So close to 700k :-( , unless next week is a 5 day schedule.

Agreed. There's only so long they can coast off of the launch momentum.

What's surprising me is how the SP is outselling the PS2. Why aren't people just buying the damn DS?

The same thing happened when the SP first came out. It's probably the price difference.

I shiver at the thought of what the hardware sales boost will be from that new Jump DS game...

Doubt it, but it'll be reasonably close.
If the GC sells 300k in a 5-day stretch to reach a million, all laws of physics will be broken.

I dunno if anyone followed my "serious discussion" thread I tried to have about DS.PSP sales, but if you did, just know that the DS is exceeding my sales expectations for the system, and I thought I was being pretty high with them too. It's fucking nuts.

Doesn't this mean the DS has nearly sold out for the estimated number of shipped units for the entire year (1.4 million)? Also, I'm going to guess the spike is from that recent increase in shipment that upped the number of units from 1 million to 1.4. So could the DS have been constrained by "low" shipment numbers?

Regardless though, I wish more were buying Band Brothers, I want some websites with sheet music of some crazy custom songs and remixes for the game. :(

I've imported 3 of the Japanese DS games (WarioWare, Mr. Driller, One Line). Add Mario 64, Zoo Keeper, Band Brothers and Feel the Magic to that & you have a hell of a lot of great games. If I lived in Japan, I'd not have a bad word to say about the thing. I am not stunned that it's selling boatloads.

As much as I like the DS I have to admit I'm pretty shocked too. I guess those 2 million retail preorders weren't for nothing.

I'd say it did about 50k. It's 26th on the list but everything gets a huge boost this time of year. Should end up doing close to 200k.

No, it broke a million. It looked like it wasn't going to, but it did.

LAST YEAR SALES: 22 -28 Dec 2003
platform this week last week 2003 total
1 PS2 189,600 160,100 2,995,200
2 GBASP 168,000 132,400 2,347,200
3 GC 154,500 95,100 1,027,200
4 GBA 28,800 23,000 1,180,800
5 XB 3,000 2,400 101,400
6 PS 880 560 64,200
7 SC 510 280 35,000

Those were the final tabulations for 2003 - while we're in a slightly similar time period, it's not the final week.

It's not gonna happen, man. 300k in 5 days for that system is insane. Even the PS2 wont pull off those numbers.
