Forums - Sales Discussion - It's now official the Nintendo DS has become the best selling video game system of all time!

After 8 years on the market, the Nintendo DS finally outsold the PS2 in global sales and thus became the #1 video game system in sales.

Do I even need to say it?

It's incorrect.

3DS Friend Code: 0645 - 5827 - 5788
WayForward Kickstarter is best kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1236620800/shantae-half-genie-hero

Why?



It's not official until Nintendo says otherwise.

VGChartz has stopped tracking PS2 sales since last year, so it doesn't take into account the fact that PS2 is still selling (particularly in emerging markets).

Already posted. But I think the consensus in the other thread is that this is true. After twelve years Sony with all its financial problems and getting ready for more vita support and PS4 has stopped production.

No one will ever beat the DS now. Especially with tablets ruling the world.

- VGC stopped to track PS2 sales
- PS2 is still in production
 - Sony shipped 155.1 million at March, 2012
- Sony shipped more PS2 after March, 2012

Whether you think PS2 still holds the crown or not, there's no denying the DS got where it is MUCH more quickly.

Wrong.

The DS was already outselling PS2 in global sales here on VGChartz last year and a lot of people were complaining that the PS2 was undertracked.

VGChartz has updated PS2 numbers since then.

Anyway, don't want to start a sales vs. shipping figures debate. But there is no way that the PS2 is selling higher in emerging countries than what DS does in NA, Europe and Japan combined.

Shipped =/= sales
