Prior to launch and even well after it’s launch the DS was touted as gimmicky and had a lack of quality games. I think the numbers speak for themselves as Ars Technica carries the story that they have surpassed the 20 Million unit mark. That many systems in such a short time speaks volumes about the strength of the system that has a breath of fresh air in it’s sales, I mean sails, with the release of the DS Lite recently.
This little system held off the would be powerhouse that is the PSP, whose rep as a gaming system seems to have fallen by the wayside.
