In Japan the 3DS has sold more units than the PS3

People say Nintendo is doomed yet the 3DS has sold more in Japan in a year and a half than the PS3 has in 6.5 years. And has sold more in that territory than the Vita has globally.

PS3's large initial price and missteps has damaged the Sony PlayStation brand name there and I wonder if it will pick up or if the 3DS will continue to smash it.

Btw I posted on here because "PS" fanboys call that trolling. Yet the facts are all provided...

The PS3 was $600 what do you expect?

I knew someone was going to say this, even if I agree.

And Sony lost money on each PS3 sold until recently while Nintendo raked in profit for every Wii, DS, and 3DS sold.

Well, Media Create numbers support it. Their latest numbers (as reported here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/620272-playstation-vita/67040104 ) have the 3DS as 12 mil LTD, and PS3 as only 9.3 mil LTD.

But, yeah. If you post numbers, use the media create ones instead. They're a LOT more reliable.

This isn't a shocker. Handhelds in general do better in Japan then consoles. Also, lets be honest here, by Sony coming out with PSP, they basically split their market in half with the more Japanese games and Japanese gamers going towards PSP and more western games and more western gamers going to the PS3.
