Thanksgiving is a time for families, food, and buying everything you can when it goes on sale the day after. Many companies take advantage of this by offering exclusive bundles and deals during the week of Black Friday, and this year Nintendo was no different. With the Wii and DSi XL each offering a Red console with plenty of games bundled celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros., there were plenty of Nintendo consoles to go around and boy did they. According to Nintendo’s internal sales estimates, 900,000 DS Family consoles (all models) and 600,000 Wii consoles were sold between Sunday, November 21st and Saturday, November 27th.

OK. Does everybody own a DS and a Wii now? It’s hard to believe there could possibly still be people who don’t, with the amount of sales they consistently seem to have.
