As has been mentioned, the DSi became the fourth fastest-selling system based on weekend sales. The handheld sold 92,000 units in just two days. Nintendo’s Senior Product Manager James Honeywell has now reacted to the initial sales of the DSi.

“We are pleased with the initial performance of DSi over its first two days. However, a launch is just the beginning and we will continue to work hard throughout the year to try and maintain this positive start for the platform. We were also pleased to see DS Lite maintained strong sales during DSi launch and that people see that both consoles have something to offer them.”
