I wasn't exactly sure where to ask this, but it seems like a reasonable place. We get told how many sales a system has, but do the companies every release how many were manufactured? Not just for the 3DS, but others as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Sales numbers are released weekly, actual manufactured numbers are a bit more difficult to find.

Typically when fans of a particular product try to figure out actual physical numbers of a product made serial numbers are usually involved. Typically they are just a weird combination of year/date/unit manufactured # with a couple bit wise operations in place to make it a little more cryptic.

Generally fans try to get say a launch device or ten, and then various serial numbers from fans. Typically one is able to start mucking around with figuring out where the date/unit number is hidden and can start to get a fairly accurate count of units produced.
