@yellowgerbil,

Well, production is different from sales. It's possible that they are only expecting to sell 20-25 million but by producing 25-30 million they are able to bring the production costs down.

Also handhelds sell differently since people are far more likely to buy more than one per household. The DS managed to sell almost 30 million a year for three years straight (2007, 2008, and 2009). I agree it's unlikely but it's certainly not impossible nor unprecedented. Yes the DS was cheaper, but when accounting for inflation it was around $200. I'd also say that people today are far more receptive to spending more money on electronic devices, such as tablets, phones, computers, and even video game devices.
