Nintendo ships more DS units this week for the final scramble and gift cards.
Last-Minute Nintendo DS Shipments Help Last-Minute Shoppers
1 Million Systems Already in Consumers Hands in North America
As the countdown to Christmas continues, procrastinating shoppers will
benefit from new shipments of Nintendo DS(TM). Nintendo continues to
supply stores with the dual-screened Nintendo DS, which features a
touch screen, voice recognition and wireless capabilities. This week's
shipments also will benefit people who want to spend the gift cards
they received for the holidays.
Nintendo DS topped every major gift list this year, and was described
by The Wall Street Journal as "this year's must-buy item." Nintendo's
shipments will help meet this demand, even as eager holiday shoppers
have snapped up 1 million Nintendo DS systems in North America in a
month. Before the end of the year, Nintendo will have shipped 1.4
million Nintendo DS systems to North America alone.
