It's selling well because the price is reduced by quite a large amount, nearly half

Wow the DS only sold 370,000 first week. We saw how badly that flopped lmao.

/s


3DS =/= Wii U

When did they start selling? Oh wait, when they slashed the hell out of the price


3DS sold 3.6 million in its first month :)
Vita hasnt even sold that after nearly a year. lol


If you wanna discuss portable gaming, iPhone and iPad wins in the portable gaming department, compare the number of units and gaming applications sold to the 3DS

Apple sells more iPhones in a year than Microsoft earns total.

35 billion applications downloaded

17% gaming

So, lets see.. How many games is that, LOL a lot more than 3DS ever will sell in its life time

So those devices destroy 3DS when it comes to portable gaming.

You people keep forgetting about the other companies who makes tablets/phones and how a lot of people are switching over to them

So piss on the Vita and 3DS, both are failing compared to those

400,000 is a good, solid number for the first week. Not comparable to the Wii, but the Wii was the fastest selling system ever, so good look beating that.

(Of course, if the Wii U did somehow beat that, the trolls would still find something to complain about).


The 3DS is now the fastest selling system ever. The Wii might have been if Nintendo had been able to keep up with demand.

Xeeh_Bitz doesnt understand why a game that costs $1 will sell more than one that costs $40+...

I also wonder how many of those 300,000 Wii's sold were bought by mistake. Like by confused parents whose kids told them they wanted a Wii U and they didn't know there was a difference. Could be an interesting Christmas morning in some households.

Still available for purchase in my area, he is quoting the number nintendo has shipped to retailers not sold thru in stores. I'd still expect to be pretty hard to find right before Xmas though.

this is exactly Nintendo games are not worth it anymore.
$40 is only worth it for powerful games. I even willing to pay $ 100 for a game only, if the game worth it.

Well, when I say that's the reason 3DS sells more than a Vita, or Wii sold more than 360/PS3, was price but the fanboys say no.

So I'm going with the fanboys on this one

Oh, you guys changing the story now? How convenient.
