Well, regardless of some initial reports that DSi won't sell well due to the fact it won't work with numerous cartridges that run on DS and inferior battery life, the DSi still scored big time in Japan.

Nintendo's revamped portable console that now features a bigger screen, an integrated camera and an SD memory card slot, managed to sell exactly 535,379 units in November.
