Fun fact: 1 DS for every 7 people in Japan


You know, we never thought about this ourselves, but the ratio of people to DSes in Japan is pretty amazing. With an estimated 127,433,494 people living in Japan and 18.11 million units sold in the country, it comes to about 1 DS unit for every 7 people. If you want to go by a different figure, VGChartz has the handheld selling 19.72 million in the area, bringing that figure down to 6.4.

When you break the numbers down to something more personal like this, it really makes the weight of the sales figures that much more significant, wouldn't you agree?
