Nintendo’s announced it sold 900k DS units and 600k Wiis during Black Friday over Thanksgiving week in the US.

The DS sales numbers are for the entire line of DS SKUs: DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL.

The company sold altogether a combined 1.5 million pieces of Wii and DS hardware over the holidays.

“U.S. shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday,” said NoA president, Reggie Fils-Aime.

“For the past several years, consumers have decided that Nintendo defined both top value and all-inclusive entertainment, and that sentiment continues again at the start of this shopping season.”

Nintendo’s seen massive releases in the US recently, including Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns for Wii and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn and Super Scribblenauts on DS.

It’s also released special celebratory hardware bundles to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mario on both Wii and DS.
