3DS still being outsold by PSP and DS

Looks like this system is not off to a good start. People are buying the PSP/DS over the 3DS. Sales are slow. Mega Man just got cancelled. Most of the "exciting" games are ports/remakes.

Is Nintendo in trouble with the 3DS?

No one will know until after the holidays.

Let's see if the holiday releases change anything. If not, then yeah, there might be an issue.

Considering the PSP and DS are much cheaper and have extensive libraries, I'm not surprised.

Of course it's introuble, people arent being fooled by Nintendo this time around. This system is not next gen by any means, its just a slightly better PSP (tho no game so far looks close to KHBBS or FF Dissidia) with a 3D gimmic that barely works. Nintendo got cocky like Sony did with the PS3 and grossly overpriced their system expecting their fans were just sheep who will buy anything that has a Mario on it in the near future

Vgchartz is not reliable.

No, Nintendogs selling 2 million and Street Fighter selling 1 million as well as the possibility of OoT having high sales figures says otherwise. The number of 3DS owners will augment over the Holiday season.

Let the flamewar commence!

Saying no games so far look close to KHBBS or FF Dissidia is a lie.

Besides, this is a successor to the DS, not the PSP. The jump from the DS to the 3DS IS a next gen jump. Way bigger than GC to Wii for sure, so I'm glad Nintendo is getting back on track with "next gen" ness.

I agree they did get cocky though.
