Nintendo Reveals Lifetime Hardware Shipment Figures

Nintendo today released its financial results for the period between April 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009. And after the money stuff was all done with, the company announced some lifetime hardware shipment numbers.

And those numbers are as follows:

Wii - 67 million

DS (including all variants) - 125 million

The company also announced that 510 million Wii games have been shipped, while for the DS, there have been 688 million.

Breaking that down region-by-region, it reads as follows:

The Americas

Wii - 32 million

DS - 45 million


Wii - 9.7 million

DS - 29.9 million

Other (so, Europe and whatever's left)

Wii - 25.7 million

DS - 50 million

As for the financial earnings, things are looking a little less impressive, with net sales down 23.1% on the same period last year, operating income down 40.8% and net income down 9.4%.


    Hmm what were the worldwide SALES of the Wii?

    67 million seems quite high - but then again,i do notice a crap load of boxes in stores. Guess its best to have a lot of stock rather than none.
