    Nintendo Sold 1.5 Million Video Game Systems in Black Friday Week

    Thanks to new hardware colors and special holiday bundles, Nintendo sold 1.5 million video game systems last week, according to the company's own internal sales estimates. Nintendo reports 900,000 combined units in the Nintendo DS family of systems sold and 600,000 Wii consoles sold between Sunday, Nov. 21, and Saturday, Nov. 27

    “U.S. shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “For the past several years, consumers have decided that Nintendo defined both top value and all-inclusive entertainment, and that sentiment continues again at the start of this shopping season.”

    According to Nintendo the new commemorative red Wii and DSi XL systems and the new the orange and green Nintendo DSi holiday bundles were key parts in the success of last week sales.

    Compared to last year Black Friday the Wii had a 9.16 % increase while the DS had a 10% decrease.

    It seemed like the best time to buy. I couldn't resist the red special edition with a 50 dollar GC from Walmart. My sister wound up with a white one. She couldn't resist either.
