The 3DS continues to dominate the weekly Japanese hardware chart. According to Andriasang, Nintendo's handheld took the top spot with 54,744 sales - down slightly on last week's 60,781 tally.
I prefer to see what the sales are like in november and december :P
Why? Your not expecting it to crash and burn are you? With the holiday release lineup looking strong, it's understandable to wait until then to make solid judgement either way, but you seem kinda sinister in your comment....
SONY needs to release the Vita asap in Japan before Nintendo makes more gains. I'm pretty certain Japan will choose the vita over the 3DS.
Not a whole lot of gloom and doom comments in here....
Because numbers are facts, Opinions aren't.
Nope there are not and ive said all along the 3ds sales wil pickup and it will be the number 1 hand held console and even sell better than the ds has. The end of this year is going to be massive for the 3ds and it will be the best selling console world wide this christmas.
7 people bought a PSP Go and the PS2 outsold the 360. LULZ.
Psp go sales went down a 180%! From last week :P
it is such a nice convenience but i can see why it isnt doing so well. If anything, sony should make that system $99.
The Go has been discontinued so it's just the remaining stock being sold.
Dang, MS should've dropped the price in Japan than Portugal.
Japan =/= world :)
Yea that's is pretty obvious. haha. No one claims it was.
I would like to know where they get their numbers, because it seems kind of weird that 3DS sold good but no games did. Only one 3DS seem to did ok but didn't even make it to 1st or 2nd.
Compare the install base of the 3ds which is still new and small to other consoles and handhelds.
3DS is still riding the wave of it's price cut. It would probably settle around 40K before the holidays come.
Ha! Eat that 3DS haters.
Lame, you know this doesn't make 3DS look any better.
Look at the sales. The haters love to say the 3DS is doomed but the sales say otherwise. When the PSP isn't selling the way Sony wants it to sell it becomes sales don't mean quality, right?
PCE, don't mind the Sony fanboys. They could be served a bowl of sh/t and still say its better than what you have.
the 3ds should sell more than that !! i mean only 54k its a new console it should be selling more than 100K every week
Have you heard about the money troubles the world has been having? It may not have been in your local news, but people haven't got as much money as they did before. So they can't spend as much. But they did buy the 3ds more than anything else.
its only 170$ XD
ONLY 170? Dear god... Do you know how much it actually costs to live, and how much money people make? Only $170 is not much for you, but not everyone is as well off.
People who bought a DS but didn't buy the PSP are looking at the PSP' s richer library and cheaper price and are choosing it over the 3DS, at least for the moment. When Vita launches, expect PSP sales to start decreasing, and 3DS sales to pick up.
so people are buying PSP over the 3ds wow thats a complete failure
The xbox is raking in the big numbers as usual. LOL.
I cant believe how bad Nintendo's doing. Is really doomed. -sarcasm-
