The First Year: Nintendo 3DS versus current-gen consoles | VGW

March 27, 2012 marked the one year anniversary of the Nintendo 3DS’s US launch. After its rough launch lineup, many doomed it to failure after only a few months of being on shelves. Holiday 2011 changed that, however, as a price-drop, combined with some insanely strong releases, caused sales to soar. Check out how the 3DS’s first year stacked up against the first years of the three home consoles of this generation and decide for yourself if this was just a case of a new platform's growing pains. (3DS, industry, Nintendo, PS3, Tag Invalid, Wii, Xbox 360)
