In June, combined DS and DSi sales showed movement of 766,000 units, more than all current-generation consoles combined with Wii marking its 21st consecutive month of being the best-selling console.

Broken down: DSi sold 424,000 units and DS 342,000, and Wii 362,000.

Wii Motion Plus moved 374,000 total – 205,000 were bundled with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and 169,000 as a single purchase.

“More consumers continued to gravitate toward products that offer quality experiences and great value for the whole family,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Consumers again selected Nintendo systems for those experiences, particularly our hand-helds.”

Four games published for Nintendo platforms finished in the top 10 including: EA Sports Active at No. 3 with more than 289,000 sold, Wii Fit at No. 4 with more than 271,000 sold, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 with Wii MotionPlus at No. 7 with nearly 205,000 sold and Mario Kart Wii at No. 8 with more than 202,000 sold.
