The Wii may be exceeding the goals that have been set for sales, but it's the DS that continues to be the backbone of the Nintendo profit machine, and it's thanks to sales of the handheld that Nintendo has raised their financial forecast for the fiscal year that ended March 31. The actual reports won't be available until the end of this month, but Nintendo continues to raise their estimates. We guess there must have been a recount somewhere, and we know how messy those can be.

So what's the new estimated figure? 966 billion yen, which factors out to about eight billion in U.S. dollars, up from a mere 900 billion yen. We're starting to think the DS really does print money. Is that available as a homebrew app?
