Sale estimates of the DSi continue to climb, with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stating that the handheld has – in the space of two days – sold 600,000 units across Europe and the US.
Speaking at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan, Iwata claimed that the DSi had sold evenly across both regions; 300,000 units in the US, 300,000 in Europe, all during the handheld’s launch weekend.
Despite blurring the lines between new system and new iteration, the unit has already proven itself in Japan, selling over two million units from November 2008 to March this year.
Joining Iwata at the Correspondents' Club was Mr Miyamoto, who spoke again of plans to turn the DSL and DSi into useful tools for school teachers. The handhelds will be used to conduct customised tests for pupils, he claimed.
Miyamoto also wants the DS to provide local maps, tour guidance, virtual coupons and other such tools. "Convenience in life will be enhanced by having a DS," Miyamoto said.
