Could the DS beat them all?

GameDailyBiz posted an interesting little (well, it's not so little, really) article today about the future of the Nintendo DS. Apparently, analysts at DFC Intelligence believe the Japanese giant's latest portable system could well become the biggest selling game system ever--even topping the mighty PlayStation 2, which has racked up a whopping 115 million sales since it was first released.

Along the same lines, DFC estimated the worldwide portable market will bring in more than $10 billion this year, putting portables well on their way to leading the market as a whole (currently consoles covet that position).

Before you DS fanboys send out the party invites, understand that the sleek little system has a ways to go (it's sold about 40 million systems to date) before pushing the PS2 from the top spot.
