Everyone is well aware of how well Nintendo is doing and their March hardware sales just serve to drive the point home. The Wii sold a total of just over 600,000 units while the DS sold over 500,000 units. What makes that number even more impressive is that the DSi debuted on April 5th meaning that there was undoubtedly a large number of consumers holding out for the DSi.
