Today: France. Tomorrow: le monde!

The Nintendo DS continues to post impressive sales worldwide, and now the handheld video game player has surpassed four million units sold in France alone since it was released there in March 2005.

Stephan Bole, general director of Nintendo France, attributed the tremendous DS sales to users of all ages, including gamers over 40 years of age, females, and people who traditionally hadn't spent time with video games before.

Bole went on to put Nintendo's sales in perspective by pointing out that "the sales numbers for all Nintendo consoles, software, and accessories (all manufacturers included) in France are almost 50% of the sector and are up 149% year over year."
