The stats are in for the month of April, and NPD analysts have determined that not only was the DS the top-selling game console (big surprise), but it’s also approaching something of a milestone. Apparently, sometime in October or November, it should surpass the PS2 as the most popular console of all time.
That’s no joke — when you start talking about more than a hundred million units sold, it’s pretty much legendary already, but the PS2 has been out for several more years than the DS. I own both, so I don’t have a horse in this race. Besides, one of the horses is pretty much standing still. Not much of a race, if you ask me.
According to the NPD, though, this April was a huge downturn compared with last April, DS sales included. Maybe that’ll affect when the DS overtakes the PS2, but not whether. I’m going to put my money on November. What, just because I don’t have a horse in the race, I can’t bet on it? Give me a break!
Actually, if I had to choose one to live with forever……. I’d probably go with the PS2. What about you guys?
