News: More than 1.5 million Wii and DS systems sold.



While it doesn't look a lot like Christmas yet, Nintendo blanketed consumers with a storm of DS and Wii systems this past week.



From the time period between Sunday, November 21 and Saturday, November 27 (affectionately dubbed "Black Friday Week" by retailers), the hardware maker sold 900,000 DS systems and 600,000 Wii systems.

Nintendo credits their sales success to three limited edition holiday bundles that are now available in stores:

  • Limited-edition Mario red Wii hardware in honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. on the NES. It includes a new red Wii system, a red Wii Remote Plus controller, a red Nunchuk controller, and the games New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Wii Sports at a suggested retail price of $199.99.

  • A limited-edition red DSi XL bundle in honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. on the NES. It features a "Mario red" DSi XL system with three iconic Super Mario Bros.-themed graphics, a copy of Mario Kart DS and preloaded software including Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters, Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock. It is available at a suggested retail price of $179.99.

  • Orange and green DSi systems, which are bundled with Mario Party DS. They are available at a suggested retail price of $149.99.
