Nintendo DS sales have topped one million units in both the USA and Japan, Nintendo announced today, as the company revealed that the combined shipment figures across both regions would exceed 2.8 million by the end of the year. The platform holder also reiterated that details of the European launch will be revealed in early 2005, as retailers continue to speculate on a late March launch date - many already offering pre-orders.

Within less than a week of launching in the US on November 21st, more than half a million DS units had been sold, Nintendo said today, leading to stock shortages around the country as 90 per cent of the launch allocation was snapped up by eager fans.It took just four days to achieve the same level of sales in Japan, where the unit launched on December 2nd.
