Nintendo of America has confirmed that over 6 million Nintendo DS units have been sold in the United States in 2007 up until the end of November. If you break the figures down it equates to roughly one Nintendo DS sold every five seconds of 2007.

The sales of the Nintendo DS have increased every year in the US since its launch in November 2004. The sales figures have led Nintendo to predict that its popular handheld device will be 2007’s top selling video game system.

“There’s no letup in sight,” says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “Nintendo DS appeals strongly to both core and casual gamers, and its momentum is set to propel us into 2008.”

The US Thanksgiving week sales record was previously held by the Game Boy Advance. In 2005 the GBA sold 600 000 systems, however, this year the Nintendo DS beat this record when it sold over 650 000 units in the same period.
