About the popularity

This paragraph is about the most popular gaming system.

According to Jeff Tyson The Nintendo DS is selling the best, the Play Station, the Xbox, and the Wii are catching up. They are making a upgrade that the Wii will take pictures. I think that the Wii is best but thatŐs my opinion.
