    3DS surpasses PS3 lifetime sales in Japan

    It's took the 3DS just two years to sell more than the PS3. The Japanese sure love their handhelds (well, not Vita). It's quite a surprising stat though. And what makes it more exciting is that Nintendo have not dropped THE BOMBS yet.

    No true 3DS Zelda. No Pokemon. No Smash Bro's.

    Sales figures according to Media Create:

    Nintendo Wii U - 308,142 (308,142)
    Nintendo 3DS – 211,499 (8,799,378 )
    PlayStation 3 – 36,994 (8,716,260)
    PSP – 19,637 (19,488,236)
    PlayStation Vita – 11,039 (1,074,621)
    Nintendo Wii – 6,714 (12,608,700)
    Xbox 360 – 1,216 (1,608,399)
    PlayStation 2 – 904 (21,829,112)
    Nintendo DS – 424 (32,875,469)

    Zelda and Smash Bros. aren't bombs in Japan; Monster Hunter, Pokemon and Dragon Quest are.

    No surprise though, it's a handheld. Even Vita will surpass all home consoles sales eventually.

    No doubt that Nintendo owns Japan, and has for a while.

    There shouldn't be any. The console was discontinued in 2007.

    Yeah, it looks like it's just for items still for sale. I mean, no dreamcast, 3d0, etc.

    Gamecube sales would be just under 22 million units, from what I've read.

    Really? I thought it was way more than that. IIRC Sega Saturn was the weirdest. It sold about 10 mil WW and about 6 mil of it was from Japan.

    Yeah, it turns out the majority of Gamecube sales come from America. But I'm sure that's because Sony left a larger impact with the PS2.

    well i dont blame nintendo for beating ps3, they do make very good consoles, but i still like SONY better
    The Last of Us, Anime, Rosie Jones

    No matter what race you are or what you look like or your sexuality or where you come from, We are all the same people and we are all bothers & sisters so love each other & don't let anyone tell you any different.

    Remember you can't choose what you are from birth but you can choose what you want to become.

    Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they are not there we all got to have something to believe in.

    :O It's also been announced that the DS has surpassed the PS2 in lifetime world wide sales.

    Gaming is amazing, two brilliant platforms!
