The DS is as popular in Japan as The Sims is in the entire world. Japanese retail tracker Media Create announced today that the DS has sold a total of 100 million pieces of software in its home territory.
It took the DS three years and five months to reach this feat. In contrast, the PlayStation 2 took four years and three months.
Media Create also provided a few stats for the system. Since launch, the DS has seen 922 titles. Of these, 21 have crossed the million mark.
New Super Mario Bros. is the best selling DS game of all time in Japan with 5,174,163 units. Below it on the top 10 are Brain Age 2 (4,835,159), Animal Crossing DS (4,693,662), Brain Age (3,771,440), Mario Kart DS (3,042,753), Pokemon Diamond (3,005,505), Pokemon Pearl (2,490,564), English Training DS (2,216,322), Mario Party DS (1,706,506), and Big Brain Academy (1,654,285).
Except for the Pokemon games, these are all Nintendo-published titles.
