Yep, good for Nintendo. I'm curious about the WiiU sales ?

Good job for The Last of Us, great game.

Wii U sales must have been real low since Nintendo didn't even comment on the numbers

There's nothing left to talk about concerning the WiiU. Just wait and see if launching a major title every month for the next 10 months or so will pay off

"Callahan also put some context around Naughty Dog's hit, The Last of Us: “The Last of Us was the top selling game at retail in the month of June. To put this in context, it had the second highest first-month sales of a PS3 first-party game, after God of War 3 in March 2010. The Last of Us was also the third highest game to launch during the month of June since NPD began tracking sales in 1995.”

TLOU is doing well deserved huge numbers

God of war 3 did 1.1million in its first month.
Uncharted 2 was 537K
Uncharted 3 was 700K

So This puts Lastofus anywhere from 750k to 1.05mil.

That is insane for a new IP.

Nintendo really knows how to work the handheld market, which I assume is primarily casual

Animal Crossing is the definition of the perfect handheld game. Pick up and play at any time, you can play for either 30 minutes or 3-5 hours

3DS is just a continuation of the success of the DS. Intuitive, has that unique feature to catch you in, appeals to children and anyone who can see it has great games for it. Nintendo has proven time and time again they are king of the handheld video game market

I guess the onset of the digital age is causing retail sales to drop.
Almost at that 200 hour mark in Animal Crossing!
