    The Nintendo 3DS is doing incredibly well. So is the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    The PS3 is doing great. To be going that strong with Sony's back being up against the wall all generation really shows the strength and resolve of the PS brand.

    Any surprises there? Well for me, I am surprised to see the Xbox version of ME3 sold 4:1 to the PS3 version. I am also PLEASANTLY suprised to see that MLB The Show 12 is a homerun. Baseball games are not usually huge sellers, but The Show has proven it is the shiznit.

    Well, it is kinda overpriced. Not to mention, people know that Sony will most likely release an updated version in a year or two with a price cut. In fact, I'm banking on that being the case. I'm waiting for an improved version myself.

    Actually I'm not surprised by either. The Show always does great (blows away the 2k baseball game) and I pretty much expected the 360 version of ME3 to outsell the PS3 version although I wasnt expecting it to be 4:1. I was expecting maybe 2:1. Good numbers for both 360 and the PS3. I wish we had the Vita numbers.

    Some other numbers:

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57...?tag=cnetRiver
    • Total spending on Xbox hardware, software, and accessories hit $430 million, more than was spent on Sony's PS3 and Nintendo's Wii combined.
    • Sales of consoles and other hardware touched $323.5 million, a 35 percent drop from March 2011.
    • High definition console systems fared better than many other hardware platforms
    • Video game accessory sales declined by 8 percent to $222.5 million year over year. The industry actually sold more physical accessories than a year ago, but sales were down as a result of a drop in the average selling price.
    • Although the NPD doesn't publicly share sales breakdowns by platform, Microsoft executive Aaron Greenberg did share that Xbox 360 sales for the space opera Mass Effect 3 were 943,000 units for the month.

    i'm guessing it's all the people who've played all the previous games wanting to carry over the saves.

    "OVER DOUBLE ME2'S OPENING"

    Yeah I don't think so... This isn't Call of Duty dude, ME3 is doing great compared to the previous games.

    I think it's ridiculous that Raccoon City is doing well, because I have heard nothing but overwhelmingly negative things about it.

    less than a mil on 360 and less than 250,000 on ps3.

    you sure that can be classed as "doing great" on multi-million selling systems?
    i'd class that as under-performing at best.
