No need to compare sales, both did great.
Tell that to those who compare the ps4 to xb1 numbers like they have a personal stake in the company but it is good to see that handhelds are still doing great
There will always be those who will make this a sales competition, to show superiority I guess. Personally, I would just be happy the company I like is doing well.
I want all the companies to do well. Dont do any shady business and provide gamers with what they want. You hear that Square Enix? Bring us Final Fantasy 7 damnit
But the new 3DS just launched in the US. So of course it sold well.
Wasn't it old 3ds and new 3ds combined sales that out sold PS4? I mean if you are putting two together of course they have good chance of outselling PS4. Did they outsell PS4 + PS3 combined sales?
ps4 and ps3 are completely separate consoles. the new 3ds is more like the black 360 was to the original xbox 360 it can play some games the previous version cant but its the same console.
^No it isn't... It has a few games that will only be playable on n3DS. It's similar to Windows 10 over 8. 8 can do mostly the same things but 10 has exclusive features and will eventually get more support.
lol so you think because they released different version of 3ds it's not the same handheld device ?? and what if they will release ps4 slim ? you WILL be adding these numbers together ..
Was pretty damn close to picking one up the other day. Haven't used a Nintendo handheld since my DSlite. for some reason I really want to try monster hunter
Got meself new 3ds monster hunter edition it's pretty darn awesome game and device stable 3d is to die for
3DS is an awesome handheld system with some of the best software around. Good job Nintendo!
Comparing sales of a handheld to a console wow.
They're dedicated gaming consoles in handheld form, they're still consoles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Seems fair. Lord knows I've seen countless articles in the past about Vita outselling the Wii U. Congrats Nintendo. Not bad for a device that was written off early in its cycle.
A $200 portable console beat a $400 home console... In other news last month Dodge sold more chargers than ferrari sold enzo's
That and it's a brand new SKU that got marketed to shit as being this big new thing, so of course it's gonna cause a spike in sales. Let's see if 3DS is still outselling PS4 in March.
I love to see you pathetic little xbots disagreeing with fact. Good comment DialgaMarine.
Any new console is going to do well. The 3DS has had strong sales, regardless, but why make a big deal out of it? It's a new system with a massive marketing push and two major bundles.
home console sales & handheld sales arent to be compared.. Good job for both companies though.. To even be compared to PS4 sales is a huge feat on its own
3DS has a more broader audience than PS4.
Well, the 3DS is a very solid device. I'm sure the sales spike could be attributed to (at the very least) Majora's Mask releasing, the New 3DS releasing, and the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate 3DS. I also wouldn't rule out Smash 4 selling New 3DS handhelds either. Why? Because that game popularized Shulk more than his actual game could and I'm thinking that, since you need a New 3DS to play Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, sales for the platform saw some sales. We'll see how it sells and see if there's any relationship there. Otherwise, great sales. PlayStation 4 continues to show strong consumer demand and that's just fantastic. Good for Sony. They've really turned around from the PS3 era. I loved the PS3, but the PS4 is getting a lot right and much sooner. Here's to a solid future.
Does the 3ds come with delusion installed?
Don't do that lol. The 3DS is sincerely a solid piece of hardware. We've talked before, and I like you, but be reasonable, my friend. If you haven't, pick one up and try Bravely Default, Monster Hunter 4, Fire Emblem Awakening (perhaps an acquired taste), SMT IV, and heck, even Pokemon. Very good games. I like my Vita, but my favorite games are games I've played on other platforms (MGS HD Collection & Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster) and Gravity Rush. I think many would agree that in terms of game offering, 3DS has it beat. I bring the Vita up to say that, if any handheld is deserving of praise, it'd be the 3DS. I don't think the 3DS will outsell PS4 in March at all, but it's not a big deal. They're both great platforms that are totally worth owning.
A 200 dollar brand new handheld outsold an almost 2 year old 400 dollar console. Who would've thought ?
