The Nintendo DSi LL, having officially launched in Japan this past week, has outsold everything else to the tune of 100,000-plus units, adding a "wine red" slice to the weekly Japanese hardware chart. Welcome, wine red.

After giving up pie chart real estate to Sony for the past few weeks, the ninth hardware platform on the Media Create weekly sales chart pushes Nintendo back into the leadership position in a major way. The DSi LL's closest competitor was the PlayStation 3, which commands a second place spot this week, outselling—but not by a whole lot—the Wii, PSP and regular sized Nintendo DSi. It's a fairly close race for second these days, with four platforms running neck and neck on the hardware sales front.

Not much of a competitor this week is the PSPgo, which settles for a spot between the DS Lite and Xbox 360.

DISCUSSION

I'm really starting to hate Nintendo because all this profit by regurgitating the same thing over and over is going to entice other companies to follow in its footsteps and stagnate the industry.

I mean come on! What justifies this? The DS has been losing features since inception and Nintendo continues to make money.

Maybe I'm not mad at Nintendo but Nintendo consumers that validate Nintendo's actions.
