Fantastic numbers this week for the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system.

The last few weeks of gaming have been very competitive as far as game releases, and competing sales go. It is nice to see Nintendo one more time land in the number 1 position with hardware units sold for the week. I am sure that the recent release of Nintendo DS entertainment system exclusive Pokemon Black and White 2 played a heavy handed role in making it all possible. It is also warming to see Nintendo's leading hand held further its install base, and sell upward of 22 million units worldwide with this much time left in the holiday season.

The fact the each Nintendo 3DS entertainment system is backward compatible with all last generation software offerings made it an easy choice for the consumer to support Pokemon with no hesitation. On a sadder note, it is unfortunate to see the New Super Mario Bros 2 has been pushed out of the top 10 after an extended healthy life on the charts. Though I predict a return to the bracket as we move closer to Christmas.

Rated E For Everyone

seems like u just keep winning buddy.. The world adores the 3DS for reasons that exceed my comprehension.. I love the 1st party on it so i understand that but damn lol... Pokemon, Just Dance, & Skylanders dont interest me in the slightest but ppl LOVE IT.. i just dont get it.. Vita barely squeezes a game into the top 20 but then again, it only has an install base of roughly 3 mil compared to 3DS having 20+ mil..

Why cant game like Revelations, Code of Princess, or Heroes of Ruin sell like these? Those kind of games are more my style but it seems like the games i enjoy are getting more & more rare these days.. Oh well, i dont really care what sells anymore.. I buy what i like regardless of what other ppl decide to buy..

Rated M for Mature lol

Hey dont give up on the battle yet. The holiday season has yet to truly begin. Things might turn around in your favor. But yes you should always buy what you want regardless of sales, just be safe with your purchase.

In the fake charts this week.

GribbleGrunger4277d ago (Edited 4277d ago )

Microsoft shipped 1.7 million 360s in September, but obviously they haven't sold that many yet. I'd say VG chartz is pretty accurate here... or are you thinking about IGN (the new App on LIVE) that turned the shipped 70 million to sold numbers? They included the shipped 1.7 million by the way. It WAS in the original statement from Microsoft but eh, a little manipulation can't hurt.

Why are people disagreeing? A leads a lead isn't it? What's the problem? Or do you still believe that article that used Sony's March 2012 63.4 million and compared it to Microsoft's September 2012 70 million number (including 1.7 million shipped)?

SIdepocket4277d ago

Maybe they're disagreeing because they feel sorry that a 50+ year old man has nothing better to do than troll this site and argue with children over video games.

How absolutely pathetic. You have my sympathies, gramps.

Blastoise4277d ago

Dark souls still going strong. Good to see

GribbleGrunger4277d ago (Edited 4277d ago )

Yeah, that big jump in sales comes from Japan. Perhaps the special addition just released over there.


Jobesy4277d ago (Edited 4277d ago )

Too bad nobody bought Forza Horizon. Another great, critically acclaimed addition to the franchise that nobody buys. Why?

It's a shame someone can see more value in a game like MOH: W, than Forza Horizon.

Blastoise4277d ago

Wow, you're right. Wonder why it sold so low

Ducky4277d ago

It sold low because it's simply too arcadey. It's a children's game and can't match the true authentic experience of the real farming simulator.

Xbox Series X Sales Are Trailing Both Xbox One And 360

Meanwhile, the PS5's sales are leading the PS4's in the same amount of time.

That would be the Xbox Series sales as a whole, not just the Series X. If we consider the latter in isolation, based on those leaked documents, it should be trailing behind the Dreamcast, Wii U, and PS Vita, let alone the much more successful Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

And it's also what the original source claims: "Xbox Series trails Xbox One by 13% and remains slightly behind Xbox 360". So I would suggest for the article to be corrected.

Rude-ro11h ago

How is it slightly behind the 360 when the Xbox one never passed the 360 at all?

Plague-Doctor277h ago(Edited 7h ago)

Its launch aligned. The 360 had pretty decent sales numbers at the end of its lifespan due to Kinect which is where the One really trailed off as it had no legs. That late gen success is partly why they went so hard on the Kinect at the Xbox One reveal

Vits4h ago(Edited 4h ago)

It's a curve of sales over time. Currently, within the same timeframe, Xbox Series sales are slightly behind Xbox 360 sales, whereas Xbox One sales were actually slightly ahead of Xbox 360 sales within the same timeframe.

Here a example: https://www.vgchartz.com/ar...

It's a bit concerning that people don't seem to understand this.

Its crazy that xbox is less and less relevant with every generation.

got_dam5h ago

It really is too bad. Competition is important. Nintendo is not really Competition. Sega is out of the console business. The OG xbox was fucking awesome. 360 too. It's too damn bad MS can't stay out of their own fucking way.

Vits4h ago

It's sort of impressive how they manage to pull it off. This generation seems to be the worst for Sony in terms of output, with fewer games being developed and released than in any previous console generation. It should have been the perfect opportunity for Microsoft to gain market share through partnerships and game development with their numerous studios. Instead, they have somehow managed to perform even worse.

At this point, one has to wonder if they are intentionally trying to fail.

S2Killinit2h ago

I think the slow down in game developments has been across the board, not just for Sony. I think the console shortages put a hiccup in development. But it also doesnt help that MS never developed its own studios.

jznrpg2h ago

It seemed probable with all the crappy moves and wait for E3’s.

Profchaos1h ago

It's no surprise PlayStation is the market leader you can't just do what they do and expect success it's why Nintendo is still relevant and has put out the 2nd best selling console of all time with the switch.

There's no longer anything unique about Xbox gamepass there's barely any unique software and the identity they spent two generations fostering was killed off in one foul swoop and never recovered

Not good at all but expected since Xbox is not actively pushing their console sales anymore in favor of more ‘game anywhere’ GP subscriptions. I wonder if this will affect future plans for the next console. I can’t imagine them pumping a bunch of R&D into it if they not gonna be marketing and actively trying to push sales.

shinoff21833h ago

That's fairly recent though. They haven't pushed just that this whole gen.
