ニンテンドー Nintendo DSi LLIt looks like Nintendo just can’t lose. Famitsu reported Enterbrain’s DSi LL sales figures for its first two days in stores today. 103,524 DSi LLs were sold between November 21-22, 2009, the systems first two days in Japan. In case you’re scratching your head, the DSi XL is billed as the DSi LL in Japan.

As Andriasang points out, the DSi LL launch wasn’t as impressive as the DSi launch. 170,770 DSis were sold in its first two days on sale in Japan. So the DSi was almost twice as popular. Still, 103,524 units is a pretty respectable number.

As you may recall, Enterbrain reported that 28,725 PSPgos were sold the day the system launched in Japan (November 1, 2009). Even if you decide to be generous and double that in hopes that it sold around 57,000 units in its first two days, that still can’t compare to the DSi LLs first two days on the market.

I guess this means that some gamers really are willing to haul around a larger portable gaming system if it means bigger screens. I’ve gotta admit, I do like the larger, pen-style stylus it comes with. And the wine red color is quite attractive.
