Analysts: DS to have 89% Japanese install base by 2011

An analyst group called Screen Digest is predicting continued success for the DS in the future. We do the same thing, but when they do it, they use specific numbers, and people believe them. Their craziest number? They are saying that in the distant future of 2011, 89% of Japanese households will own a DS.

They predict that by 2011, the DS will have an install base of 112 million systems worldwide, versus the PSP's 67 million. To put that in perspective, the Playstation sold 102 million units, the GBA has sold 79 million, and the NES sold 61 million. We personally hope the DS continues to dominate, because we love our jobs the system.

Come on man, I thought you guys were strict MS Paint artists. The Robocop really fits well but the John Elton glasses aren't doing it.

This is assuming that there will still be a DS by 2011. Maybe they include the DS2... but then they might as well add all the gameboys ever sold. This all sounds fishy.

The DS is most likely going to stick around until 2011. The GBA launched in 2001, and it's still around six years later.

Whoever did that art owes me a new monitor, I spilled water all over my monitor at the software farm I work at.

I couldn't comment before because I had my Internet privileges revoked...

Thanks a lot for the good laugh! Well worth it!

On Topic: 89% by 2011? Here I thought they already owned 150% of Japan!

They'll have to launch another one so people must buy it three times, and gain a greater install base than dishwashers.

Why are they still holding a DS Phat? Shouldn't they have Lites by now?
