3DS had a good week over there it seems. Star Fox was only number 6 and it released at the end of the week on 7/14, so I'm not sure why 3DS sales more than doubled. (Last week they were at 22,943, so it was an increase of 103%)
lol at psp go sales only 14. so much for the 3ds will fail doom and gloom stuff --- Student of the Ofiicial Nuzlocke council proud owner of 3ds and wii member of the Extraordinary League of Nuzlockers

Yeah. It's good to see L.A. Noire is doing alright tbh.
Is no surprise, the game is not like a GTA or RDR, that kind of games are not that popular in Japan....
And about the games, Mario is not that big in Japan (3D ones) Zelda is not that big in Japan, Metroid is not that big in Japan, etc.
Those 3DS sales are huge, selling almost twice the #1 console for the last 2 years in Japan, the PSP, that΄s something....
And like I always write, is all about the games, good games out, the console sells, is a no brainer... --- XBL/PSN: VidalukoVet (most)This gen games: http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b245/VIdaluko/DSC09548.jpg

Assuming DQ stays on Nintendo systems. DQ always hops around to whatever system is selling best. We already the sequel to Rocket Slime (awesome!) coming, though. That alone is better DQ treatment than the PSP got, so I'm staying hopeful. I hope they develop DQ games for both the 3DS and Vita this gen,
