Since the launch of the Famicom back in 1983, Nintendo has sold over 650 million consoles in the last 30 years. Breaking that number down to be a bit more specific, that equates to 268.97 million home consoles and 385.15 million handheld consoles. It should be noted that the Gameboy launched in 1989, giving handhelds less time to sell more.
Of these numbers, the most popular consoles are the Nintendo DS, which sold 153.93 million and has only been available since 2004. Current gen console sales are 3.61 million for the Wii U and 32.48 million for the Nintendo 3DS.
Not too bad, for 30 years of history.
