There is little doubt that Nintendo’s evolutionary DSi will be a hit and eager Japanese gamers snatched up the first round of units within a few days. Reportable, it took only two days for Nintendo to sell through 170,000 of the 200,000 available DSi’s with the remaining 30,000 held up in unclaimed pre-orders and back-up inventory. The company has prepped another 100,000 units but who knows how long it will take those units to sell out. Nintendo will no doubt have enough to supply American gamers when the new handheld launches here next summer.
