Considering the only consoles that sold better on launch weekend were PSP, PS3 and Wii that an amazing feat for what is, essentially, a revamped DS.

Yup they even said that the release was smaller than a new system's release would be because it's just an update(a rather impressive one in my opinion).

I wonder what the next major step will be like.

Hahahahahaaha... 4th. Awful. It basically out did itself for the same position. That's absolutely terrible IMHO. 4th is basically a participation ribbon.

I wonder if they'll count returns against this # of units sold.

Another well-deserved achievement for Nintendo.

Now if only Golden Sun 3 was on your To-Do list,you would have my money in a heartbeat.
