3DS sales surpassing Nintendo legacy platforms

Coming from Rich over at IGN...

In less than two years the Nintendo 3DS has surpassed lifetime sales of the GameCube, 2/3 of the N64 and nearly half of SNES. Interesting...

Doesn't matter. PSP failed and it has sold 75 million. Anything less than that is an uber failure.

That's impressive; although, Nintendo handhelds have done well in general since the Game Boy. (Virtual Boy does not count, because it's classified as a "portable" console rather than a "handheld.")

Of course Nnamz has to bring Sony consoles up on a topic about Nintendo consoles on a Nintendo board.

Keep up that neutrality, buddy!

It is funny too because it's about to surpass the PS3 in total Japanese sales. So much for Nintendoomed. It's even more hilarious to look back on all that trolling from a year ago.

Is that in Japan only? I'm still pretty curious about how its doing outside of Japan. Im sure its not doing badly over here but I remember hearing they werent satisfied with sales in the west
