i didnt know the ds sold that much (considering there were no good games on that for about a year)

the psp i can understand doing well, because it had a great launch... but after the launch we had like a 2 years drought before the first good game was localized (monster hunter freedom 1)

The ds sold that much because it was dirt cheap and came out during the holidays. That always leads to sales. But the game situation was bad for awhile like you said

The psp on the other hand was expensive, but sony shipped a ton right away. Double what nintendo was shipping on the ds. The psp also got the support right away because people assumed sony would crush nintendo. That never happened. and development switched gears.

PSP did that well in the beginning? Interesting.

Yeah, in fact i'm pretty sure the PSP outsold the DS for some time.

Realistically Nintendo has to meet or beat the GBA, the DS skewed the numbers with people who moved on to Facebook and Phone gaming.
