DS Lite Tops Amazon Game Hardware Sales

As if Nintendo hasn’t been getting enough press lately, here comes the DS with the highest sales numbers on Amazon. The DS has been wildly popular since its release in 2004, taking over for the wildly popular Gameboy Advance. In true Nintendo form, the DS has seen several different SKUs and a revision in hardware (the Lite), all of which have sold well. Of course, the big N isn’t the only company to do well on Amazon.

According to Amazon’s latest press release, the top software sales included the yet to be released World of Warcraft expansion and The Sims 2 Pets expansion. In console software the top selling games were “New Super Mario Bros., Brain Age and Madden Football”, all of which should come as no surprise to those of you who follow gaming news. Other top hardware sellers include the PS2 and XBox 360, which some may remember sold 1,000 units in 29 seconds during one of Amazon’s Customer Vote deals.
