1 Nintendo DS is sold every 2 sec.

July 29, 2006 at 6:02 am (Console)

In the year and a half since its launch, more than 21 million DSes have been sold worldwide. To put things in perspective, Apple only managed to ship one million iPods in the first 19 months. That works out to one DS sold ever two seconds “non-stop, since launch.” Now thats some sales figure.. shame on you Sony PSP.

More interestingly that worldwide GameCube sales total from day 1 are about 21 million, with the DS at 21.27 million. Which means that the DS has sold more units in a year and a half than the GameCube has in almost 5 years.
