DS Market ‘Not Saturated’ Says Iwata
“Some say the market for the DS is saturated, but I disagree,” he said.
“In Japan, a country with a population of 127 million, we’ve sold 23 million DS units,” he told The Yomiuri Shimbun.
“The United States is inhabited by over 300 million people, and there are more than 490 million people in the European Union. Sales of the product could grow further in foreign countries considering their populations.
Iwata went on to say that he’d like to see ‘each family member’ with a DS, and that the DS is showing stronger sales in Europe and India. Thought the DS was done conquering the world? Guess again! And with the release of DSi in other regions of the world, don’t expect sales to slow down any time soon.
