No 3DS software in the top 20 means another sales drop incoming.

If anything it means an impending sales spike once the better games come out (though there are already some 3DS titles in the list).

You mean apart from Super Pokémon Rumble.

And OOT.

And Nintendogs + Cats.

All of which you seem to have missed for some reason.

You do partially have a point though - the 3DS games in the top 20 only account for about 65,000 game sales. Obviously there are more 3DS games further down in the charts, but they're all selling very low amounts since the game in 20th place is sold less than 10,000 units last week.

That means the 105,000 new owners of a 3DS system don't seem to have bought all that many games. Including game sales to existing 3DS owners means that in fact it looks like they haven't even managed to average one game each.

This is awful news for Nintendo. No wonder they're planning on another device so soon. Can't really blame them after this disaster.

Huh?
[N3DS] 5. Super Pokemon Rumble (Pokemon, 08.11.11): 32,144 (118,437)
[N3DS] 7. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time 3D (Nintendo, 06.16.11): 21,465 (335,540)
[N3DS] 14. nintendogs + cats (Nintendo, 02.26.11): 11,690 (283,562)


Hmmm...they abbreviated 3DS as N3DS. My fault for skim reading.

Seems we'll need to wait for the holidays or even a bit further to see the bigger picture
