8. Nintendo DS
After being absent from the list for two years, the Nintendo DS hand-held gaming system returns to the top 10 in 2009.
The most recent version of the system - the DSi (right) - came out earlier this year in North America. A newer version - the DSi XL (left) - won't hit American shelves until the first quarter of 2010.
