3DS will soon pass N64 LTD

Obviously DS and Wii probably did this pretty fast as well, but it's still worth noting. Needs about 500k to get there, it should be official by September (if it's not already).

In about two and a half years the 3DS will have passed a console that was on the market for 5 years before a successor. Japan is a big factor in this obviously, with more than a third of the LTD being there so far. 3DS has already more than doubled N64's Japan LTD.

Next up, SNES. It will be a long road but 3DS should surpass it depending on Nintendo's first party support. Pokemon/Monster Hunter/Zelda/Mario Party should increase sales quite a bit this year.

Not surprising. Japan loves their portables after all.

Is Mario Party really going to contribute all that much, though?

Mario Party usually does pretty good. It's dropping in November with ALBW and nothing in December, so it should do well. At the very least it's another multi-million selling brand to add to a consumer's purhasing decision.

Let's not forget the millions of units Smash Bros is going to move when it finally hits.

I don't know who started saying "Murrica", but it's not even funny. Saying it just makes you look stupid, so stop!
