A Nintendo DS Sold Every 2 Seconds
You always hear those weird statistics like “every 2 seconds somebody…” but you never really pay attention to them. Well, Nintendo is claiming a DS is sold every 2 seconds since launch. It is one of those statistic you laugh at until you realize that 18 months is 47,335,389 seconds and 21 million DSs have sold since then.
In the year and a half since its launch, more than 21 million DSes have been sold worldwide. I hesitate to use Nintendo Math, since they tend to use things like business hours and such, but according to their mathematicians that works out to one DS sold ever two seconds "non-stop, since launch."
