I heard from somewhere that the holiday season usually accounts for 80% of Nintendo's sales. Hmmm...

4.5(total sales this year in millions)/0.2 = x(holiday sales)/0.8

cross multiply and you get

3.6 = 0.2x

divide both sides by 0.2 and add the 4.5 million and bam, 22.5 million apparent sales by the end of the year.

Do you think the 3DS can clear the 20 million mark this year?

Probably not, but I expect it to break 10 mil.

Probably - if it can't clear it, it'll come damn close. The upcoming price cut will spur some sales, and with the apparent delay of the Vita, there's only one portable option this year (not counting previous systems.)

I dunno, 6 mil in the next 4 months seems kinda low, especially after the price drop. I'm expecting a large surge in sales later this month, and then the 3DS just rides on that momentum for the remainder of the year. At least 10 million more sales.

I expect it to get to about 8-9 million. Not quite 10.
I do because I can.....and because I'm bored.

1.5 mil per month is low?
