The 3DS isn't selling as expected because people are smart and realize that

Launches suck and it's always best to wait for more games. I never got the original DS until most of the release titles were already down to $20

Or people didn't want to drop 250$ on a new handheld, and decided to wait for the holidays.


Also, I liked some of the launch games....

I've been playing DOA ever since the day it released. I kicked Street Fighter to the curb, nothing but spammers on that game.

Look, I have absolutely no problem with you buying the 3DS later but don't come here implying that everyone who bought it at launch is stupid. Kind of makes you look like a douchebag. Where would the 3DS be without its early adopters?

But it's so easy to deal with spammers.

Pretty sure it's not selling because most people aren't stupid enough to drop $250 to play games that came out ten or more years ago. >_>

...MOST people.

There are a variety of factors affecting sales. There are people following your line of thought, but there are also people who don't want to carry around an extra piece of electronics when they can play games on their phone with games that cost 95% less. Some people get spooked by overblown stories of people saying 3D gives them headaches. It is incorrect to blame low sales on only one factor.

You guys also need to remember the 3DS is following a same pattern almost to where there isn't much offered, specially since half it's life span was in the Summer time which we all know tons of good games get released.
