Nintendo ships 100m DSs

Nintendo has announced that shipments of its DS handheld gaming devices have surpassed 100 million as of March 6th. In contrast, Sony has shipped 50 million PSPs in roughly the same period of time. Nintendo released the first DS model in 2004, followed by updates such as the DS Lite in 2006. The company claims that 83 DS game titles have sold more than 1 million units each, while seven have achieved sales exceeding 10 million.

The next model in the lineup, the DSi, is scheduled to arrive in the US on April 5th for a price of $170. The device adds several features to compete with multi-purpose devices such as the iPod touch and PSP. An SD card slot will be provided for music playback and audio recording, while two cameras can be used to take self-portraits or traditional photos.

Nintendo is also jumping into the app store market with its own portal, DSiWare. The service will support game and software downloads directly to the handheld via Wi-Fi. [via VentureBeat]
