Touch Generations reach out and touch greatness

The amount of greatness Nintendo's Touch Generations line of games has touched in the US can only be conveyed through numbers. Around 3.5 million numbers, to be exact.

Yes, you read that correctly, Nintendo's Touch Generations brand, which is shared by numerous titles such as Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!, Magnetica and True Swing Golf, has sold close to 3.5 million copies in the US. Clearly, Nintendo's philosophy of making games "meant for anyone to pick up and play, regardless of their prior gaming experience" is working out for them.

1. video games are universal. Up until now, many games were targeted to the 18-35 males.

Lets do the math:
3.5 million games * $25.99 (average price?) =
$90,965,000

plus a few ds lites at $129

Nintendo is DOOMED!

2. Yeah, everyone that thought Nintendo wasn't a company to bank on has it pretty wrong.

Heh, and those are just rough estimates from Touch Generations. Factor in the other bajillion selling titles, and what do you have............?

3. I saw a Touch Generations ad last night. Very clever and aimed right at the non-gaming dad crowd. But Nintendo is showing Tetris as a Touch Generation game (!) So including Tetris sales that might be skewing the Touch Generation numbers a tad!
