The Nintendo 3DS has officially passed the PS3 in sales in Japan. The 3DS sits at 8.7 million units while the PS3 is at 8.5 million.
Holy sh****t that was fast!!
impressive but not surprising. Handhelds are far more demanded than consoles in Japan, and Sony's largest market is Europe(which, in case you've been wondering, is why they've been getting all the collector's editions and better ps plus updates recently). Wonder what all those people who said the handheld market would die this year are saying now.
Monster Hunter + Dragon Quest + Mario = insane sales in Japan
How many Wii's and PS2's sold in 6 years compared to the PS3? I won't even bother asking about the Xbox or Xbox 360.
PS2 21,829,112 Wii 12,608,700
LOL.Fast. Dragon Quest VII remake and Monster Hunter 4 coming 2013 Q1. Boom.
