    3DS Outsells Every Other Console Combined In Japan

    The latest figures from Japan's Media Create are in, showing that last year's trend has been fully reversed. Now the consumers are hungry for Nintendo's 3DS, given that it shipped 121,921 units in the week ending April 1st. That put it comfortably ahead of the PlayStation 3 (23,771), PSP (18,356) and PS Vita's (12,105) sales combined. The stats reveal that the 3DS is now accounting for 65 percent of all hardware sales in the country, a marked turnaround from when the console's future looked gloomy. Meanwhile, the biggest selling game was Kingdom Hearts 3D for Nintendo's newest handheld, which managed to shift over 200,000 units in just seven days.

    That is insane stuff. 3DS is on a roll at the moment and with 2012 titles it's not going to stop!

    C'mon, nintendo is practically giving the 3Ds away at prices I've seen. Hell, the DSi is more expensive than it.
    Nintendo panicked > fire sale began > good games released > sales improved.

    Hopefully this helps them realize that the Wii U is going to have to be priced competitively. They made a crap load of money off the Wii and DS line. With the Wii starting at 250, I'm hoping to see a 300 price tag

    Lol yeah. Vita will be fine when it has some games. It's lovely hardware but we all know games sell consoles not dual analogue sticks.

    I'm thinking of picking up a 3DS, they're selling for under 100 now online.
    I've never really understood why they sell so well tbh, there has never been a game that I "must have" for DS/3DS.
    The games just never impress me, different taste I guess.

    Only want one for Pokemon White/Black (DS), I'll rent Zelda: Oot and Mario 3D.
