Nintendo: 900K DS units, 600K Wiis sold during Black Friday week


Nintendo revealed this morning that US consumers gobbled up 1.5 million pieces of the company's hardware over the Black Friday week of November 21 - 27. According to internal estimates, 900,000 DS units (over the entire DS "family") and 600,000 Wiis were sold.

Nintendo released several bundles over the month to capitalize on the Nintendo faithful who seek that new hardware smell. The company launched the delicious Super Mario Bros. 25th anniversary bundles earlier in the month, followed by the pumpkin- and ooze-colored DS bundles featuring Mario Party -- a title one can promptly trade in for a discount on a better game.
