15 million GBAs last year wasn't enough, so Nintendo wants to go for 20 million next year.

After unvieling the Game Boy Advance SP, Nintendo has made some agressive sales goals for its flagship handheld unit. Here's a few snippets from the Reuters story:

Nintendo aims to sell two million of its new GameBoy Advance SPs, which feature rechargeable batteries and a brightly lit screen, in the first six weeks after their February 14 launch, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata told a news conference.

It plan to sell 20 million GameBoy Advance machines globally in the next business year, up from its target of 15 million this year.

Hello Bot,

They say 20 million GBA, is that figure of the combined sales of the GBA and GBAsp? The press release mentions the GBAsp seperately selling 2 million on launch, but fails to clarify otherwise. Please reply with your bot goodness. face-icon-small-happy.gif
