Nintendo's Biggest DS Still A Big Deal In Japan

Nintendo's recent price drop on its line of portable game machines is giving the platform a big boost in Japan. As it has since becoming cheaper, the XL-sized Nintendo DSi LL reigns supreme on Japan's sales charts.

Add another 32,000-plus Japanese players of the biggest Nintendo DS to date. When combined with the portable's other hardware variations, the Nintendo DS family moved another 55,000-plus units. Not bad for a week's work and more than double what any other platform sold in the country.
