The Nintendo DS and its variants have crossed a neat little milestone: 50 million units sold in the US, according to NPD numbers passed along by Nintendo. Seven years after launch, and seven months after the release of its successor, people are still buying the thing.

Nintendo also had some relatively good news to share about the 3DS: it moved over 260,000 units in September, bringing the post-price-drop total to 450,000 in the US. And pretty much all of those buyers also picked up The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, as it has surpassed half a million units sold in the US.
