Living in Japan, it's so hard to imagine DS's staying power in America.

Can anyone explain it? Are old games still selling well? What are people playing on it?

It's $99 and has an amazing library, much of which is available at bargain-bin prices. Same reason why PS2 and GBA kept selling well into their successors' lifespans.

My nephews are finally starting to talk about it. Although their parents still think it's a tablet addon for the Wii.
I imagine this is the exact reason Nintendo isnt selling stand alone tablets at launch. by only selling it together with the system there is no way any parent can identically buy it thinking it will work on the wii.
