Nintendo 3DS Best-Selling Video Game Console In February

Thanks largely to the launch of the New 3DS in February, Nintendo's handheld console was the best-selling video game console of the month according to both internal Nintendo data and NPD numbers.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nintendos handhelds always sold well.
My question tho is..are they combining 3ds+new3ds sales?
Also the 3ds is the cheapest of the three consoles because its a hand held so why even compare them? Why not just compare the wiiu because its a real console? Whats next we gunna start comparing cell pHones? They play games too.
Smh i guess my point is compare handhelds with handhelds, consoles with consoles and pc's with pc's . Otherwise your just manipulating your point.
protip: im not taking anything away from the 3ds its awsome, but articles these days are losing its quality.

Yea new a new edition of a console. Go give yourself a pat on the back.

While PS4 has been outselling the 3DS at $399.99 consistently every month before this.

I already know the answer, but I'll ask this anyway:

Why are you- and the article- pitting multiple versions of the 3DS against one version of the XB1 and PS4? I'm not sure whether you're doing it so the PS4 won't win, or so Nintendo WILL, but it's pretty weak, in either case.

Then again, after seeing your recent campaign, I guess I shouldn't expect any better.

it's a 3ds, it's never been split out before (DS and DSi for example or 2ds and 3ds even) so why would they start now?

also when the inevitable slim versions of the PS4s and X1s come out should they be split since they're technically different consoles?

also kinda laughable everyone defaults to the same response when presented with facts, so i've said something unfavourable about the order (which many many people have done) and all of a sudden i'm anti sony this and pro Ninty/MS this... if you don't like the statement (based on fact) then all's well for you but ye come off bitter not me

The 3DS family 😂😂😂 I find it crazy how Nintendo turned it around with the 3DS. Now that thing sells like nothing where as in the beginning they struggled. Just goes to show that Nintendo owns the handheld market by default IMO.

Well a handheld is a computer system specially made for playing games, and connected to a display with sound, the display and sound are just built into it, so I'd say right there that your thought is wrong
