April NPD: DS breaks 1 million, PS2 outsells PS3


DS sold more than 1 million consoles in the US last month, shifting 1.04 million units.

There's no split on the the figures to tell us how many DSis are included in the figure.

PlayStation 2 outsold it's younger, shinier brother by 45,000 units: the ancient machine, freshly cut to below $100, sold 172,000 to PS3's 127,000.

Xbox 360 just managed to hold off the resurging PS2, selling 175,000 machines.

Wii won the home console battle yet again: It sold 340,000 in April.
