GUFUyourself writes - "Nintendo’s 3DS did not have a very good start. Because of the high price and the lack of software and features, Nintendo’s newest handheld was not selling as expected, forcing them to lower the price in all regions and take heavy losses because of it. Gaming journalists and forum posters from around the internet were proclaiming Nintendo as a “doomed” company because of the low sales and the growing competition of the Vita and smartphones. However, 3DS sales have been rising in all regions and the system’s major titles are beginning to be released, starting with Super Mario 3D Land. Nintendo’s legendary mascot has finally arrived on the 3DS, and his game is the best 3DS game to date."
