According to NPD Group, Nintendo sold more than 620,000 hardware units in the U.S. in April. This includes more than 257,000 units in the Nintendo DS family, and only 194,000 Nintendo 3DS units. Nintendo also sold more than 172,000 Wii consoles.
The to-be best selling console of all time!
Of course, while the 3DS is new it is expensive and doesn't have any must have titles yet. Sales will spike after the N64 classics come out.
Agreed, also @metsb, have you played a 3DS? It's like comparing the DS to the GBA. Even the graphics are much improved
Its about games, why buy some thing when what you want is not out yet?
well duh? The PS2 was still outselling the PS3 for awhile lol Its not like the DS died when the 3DS hit nor does Nintendo want the DS to die.
ok dont bring in ps2 into this, this is about nintendo, dont start your fanboy war shit please.
I don't see him starting anything
Im just stating that the PS2 was still outselling the PS3 when it launched just like how now the DS is outselling the 3DS, how was what I said in anyway starting a fanboy war?
He was just using that as an example, no fanboyism there.
And the original ds had it worse It was being outsold by the psp and gba in every region. It was thought that the system might actually bomb but the first price drop and revision turned the fortune around. The 3ds is outpacing the original ds by millions right now when you look at nintendos financials. And for the record do you think its ever fair to compare a cheaper system now with a library of 5+ years worth of games and a system that just launched? Its never fair. Just look at how the trolls iviserated the ps3 at launch and look how its doing now. Hell I remember articles when the 360 came out " How do we fix the 360" This doom and gloom bullcrap at the beginning of launches needs to stop
3DS needs games. once the games are here, you will see it will do well in its lifetime. this is a stage that every new console goes through.
Its not really suprising. The gba was taking the ds to school for a long time. The psp was also outselling the ds for a long time. It wasnt even until the first price drop and revision (the ds lite) that the ds line was even remotely successful The 3ds is actually out performing what the ds did at the beginning by quite a huge margin. The 3ds will break 100 million units theres no need to worry. So all this senseless doom and gloom is getting annoying. Even analysts like EEDAR's Jesse is saying the same thing exact thing.
I like it when people disagree with me, just for saying the 3DS isn't doing to well because of the lack of titles. That is the main reason I haven't got one, I might get the Zelda game but I do have it for my N64 and other then that the Mario game is the biggest one I'm waiting for.
Not really shocking. Nothing worth getting on the 3DS as of now.
Well, the console just launched and has no good launch titles. What did you expect? It's always like this. Even the DS had terrible sales at first. I assume the 3DS will get a sale boost when Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D (june 19 release) comes out. I assume it will get another when Mario Kart 3DS, Super Mario Bros 3D, Paer Mario and Star Fox 64 3D comes out.
"other than the 3d it really has nothing, its just the same at the last DS. " lol you sir area dumb ass if you didn't know that's how everything worked, and 360 quality isn't a ds fyi.
well hot Damn! a nintendo product outsold a nintendo product. They must be mad as hell! It's over, nintendo is doooooomed....:/
