Denise Kaigler, NOA’s vice president of corporate affairs, has said that the DSi sold more units in its first three months on sale in the US (1.7 million) than the original DS (1.38 million), DS Lite (1.07 million) or Wii (1.52 million).

So far, DSi has sold 6.86 million units worldwide and is expected to continue selling well due to the line-up of games for it on the way.

“As for what’s on the way, as you know, we have a number of strong hand-held games coming up before the end of the year, including Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky and, of course, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks,” Kaigler told IGN. “And don’t forget, there’s the August launch of Fossil Fighters, which I am personally very excited about! No matter what kinds of games you like, there should be something to enjoy on this list.

“On top of that we’ll also have a regular flow of Nintendo DSiWare titles available for download.”
