Nintendo DS Primed To Destroy PS2′s Legacy
At more than 140 million units sold, the Playstation 2 is the bestselling game console on Earth to date. The Nintendo DS has moved 129 million units through March 2010. NPD Group analyst Anita Frazier says the DS will overtake the PS2 as the most popular console ever by the end of the year.
“The NDS is approaching the PS2 as the best-selling hardware system of all time, and by October or November of this year, it should meet or exceed the install base of the PS2,” Frazier said.
That seems to me to be a lot of ground to cover in six months, but I don’t get paid to make those kinds of predictions. But, hey, it’s another reason to watch those sales numbers closely. And it’s incentive for Sony fanboys to go buy a bunch of PS2s and donate them to charity. Get on it, folks.
