Congratulations to Nintendo and the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system.

From the very first time I focused my eyes on this beautiful handheld device several years ago. I knew it would be an astounding success. The Nintendo 3DS entertainment system then went on to shatter my expectations as far as sales, and award winning quality exclusives go. I guess Japan has taken notice to its greatness as well.

Now the Nintendo 3DS has gone on to surpass every gaming platform before it in record breaking sales in the land of the rising sun. An achievement that would not have been possible without the love, and support of the Nintendo Elite gamers of Japan. Carving the Nintendo brand into the number one spot in Japan, and even worldwide as far as trends and weekly sales go. Miyamoto Lord & Savior of Nintendo gaming and supreme innovations should be proud of this notable accomplishment.

My Legend of Zelda baseball cap is tipped in Nintendos favor. In hopes that Nintendo continues to dominate sales in japan, and continue to bless us Elite Nintendo supporters with another year of great exclusive AAA quality content.

Have a blessed day and happy gaming.
