600K Wiis, 900K DSs Sold During Black Friday Week

Nintendo announced today that it sold a combined 1.5 million Wii and DS units in the U.S. last week, aka Black Friday week. According to Nintendo’s sales estimates, around 900,000 DSs (all models) and 600,000 Wiis found their way into shopping carts between November 21 and Nov. 27.

Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime provided this rather impressive statistic in an official statement: “U.S. shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday.”

The new red Wii and orange/green DSi bundles proved hugely successful, and significantly helped drive sales, as did Nintendo’s strong holiday lineup of titles for both platforms.

Even though Disney Epic Mickey doesn’t come out until this week, I’d expect a fair percentage of last week’s Wii purchases were in preparation for Warren Spector’s highly anticipated adventure platformer. And you can bet even more Wiis will be sold over the coming weeks because of Disney Epic Mickey as well, which is good news, because if there’s one thing Nintendo needs it’s more money and success.

Anyone out there pick up a Wii/DSi bundle last week?
