DS finally outsells Game Boy, best-selling handheld ever

Up until now, Nintendo's GameBoy was the best selling handheld game system ever, with some 118 million units sold. When you look back at your collection of portables, it makes sense. I still have the ol' Green Screen, Game Boy Pocket, a broken Game Boy Color, and a GBA SP. I had the Micro for some time and I lost that sweet GBP that had the Timex Indiglo backlight. Hey, that's how they got that record!

Now that I think of it, they're doing the same with the DS brand. I have bought the original DS, the DS Lite (still have a blue Japanese launch day model), the DSi (likewise, a launch day green model) and I just got a US DSi XL. Regretting the last one, BTW. I'm sure I did my part to help Nintendo hit this record of 128.89 million units sold.

What's scary is that Nintendo is far from done with the DS.
