Nintendo DS rules all in June

The big N announced today that the DS was the top-selling game console in the U.S. for the month of June, reporting roughly 600,000 in sales. Some credit could definitely given to the release of the DS lite, the original DS’ smaller and more compact sibling, as well as the surge in popularity with games like “Brain Age, Big Brain Academy and “New Super Mario Bros.”

Also keep in mind that early-to-mid summer is typically a slow time for major game releases, so t was only a matter of time before someone capitalizes on the time when everyone is busy loading up for the holidays. With summer movies seemingly not being the gigantic draw it used to me, I wou;dn’t be surprised of more companies tried the same tactic.
