654.12m. That amazingly high figure is the number of consoles that Nintendo has sold in the last 30 years.

That number breaks down into two parts, GoNintendo reports.

Firstly, Nintendo has sold 268.97m home consoles – that includes sales of the NES (Famicom), SNES (Super Famicom), N64, GameCube, Wii and Wii U.

Secondly, Nintendo has sold 385.15m handheld consoles – that includes all variants of the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, DS and 3DS.

In addition, Nintendo has sold 2.195bn console games and 1.907bn handheld games.

The figures come as part of a financial release from the company that included a personal pledge from Nintendo president Saturo Iwata promising a return to form for the company.

“Nintendo posted an operating loss for the fiscal year ended March 31st 2013,” he stated. “However, we strive to regain ‘Nintendo-like’ profits for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2014 by providing many people with fascinating games and services.

“We continue to make brand-new and unique proposals and make efforts for the growth of the home entertainment industry with a mission that is to pleasantly surprise people and put smiles on the faces of everyone Nintendo touches.”
