And with the DS Lite and Wii, we can't say we're surprised. Those things are selling faster than cigarettes at a truck stop. So, it's not surprising to us that Nintendo's market value is now the best it's ever been, exceeding over 10 trillion yen ($85 billion). This is the kind of money we imagine a mad scientist or super villain has access to.
The Wii and DS have no signs of slowing down their incredible cycle of emerging from warehouse, only to be placed on store shelves for a small amount of time before being anxiously purchased by patrons of these establishment. So, expect Nintendo's worth to only increase over the next indeterminate amount of time.
