Nintendo DS

The previous family of handheld game consoles from Nintendo. Introduced in 2004 and featuring dual screens (the "DS"), the top screen was the game screen while the bottom touchscreen was used to make selections. The DS was followed by the DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL and the 3DS.

In 2011, the DS family outsold all other products from the company, including the very popular Game Boy (introduced 1989), GameCube (2001) and Wii (2006). See Nintendo Switch, video game console and gamer.
