It's funny because IGN is actually a unit of Fox Interactive Media. All of you are completely correct by saying IGN is the Fox News of the gaming media world.

Anyway, it's awesome that the 3DS sold that much in Japan. Imagine how much it will sell in Europe, Australia, and America. If a price drop causes this much sales I wonder how successful the 3DS will be during the holidays. By then Nintendo will have rolled out Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, two games that will sell millions upon millions of copies throughout the 3DS's lifetime. The 3DS and Nintendo are going to fail my ass.


Unless they have good, compelling software, I'm still not buying one.

B-but the 3DS is a flop! no gaems! iOS is the future! Nintendo is doomed!

Lol every system has a big boost in sales after a GIANT price drop but the real test is if it keeps selling this much after a week or two because if the sales drop back do to the normal 10,000 to 20,000 then this system is offically dead

Only 207k? If PSP gets a pricedrop once Vita arrives, PSP would outsell 3DS by a landslide.


You know it's truly good news for Nintendo, ladies and gentlemen, when it draws out comments by "ixoria."

What kind of world to we live in. Where love is divided by hate. Losing control of our feelings. We all must be dreaming this life away in a world so cold.
