Nintendo 3DS is still Japan's best selling system

Comment on site articles.

Over three times as many sold than other consoles

Over in Japan, the 3DS is still dominating the battle of the consoles, selling over 61,000 units in this week's Japanese sales charts. In comparison, the second best seller was PlayStation 3, which only managed just over 20,000 units.

Nintendo 3DS is still Japan's best selling system

The 3DS is outselling the Vita by 10:1

I wonder how the DS sales in Europe and America compare to PS2 sales, as the PS2 is selling twice as much in Japan as the DS. The DS is so close to reaching the PS2 lifetime sales, it would be a shame if the DS maxed out at 153 milllion units, I want to see it beat the PS2 at about 153.5 million units. :P

PS2 is still selling in Japan!? What is the point? There aren't going to ever be any new games for it!
Mabye the Wii U will push it off the edge :twisted:
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

Good to see BD:FF ranking quite highly in its maiden week of sales. Quite a few of friends in Japan have bought it and are really enjoying it. I do have a good feeling the game will be released outside of Japan in the next 12 months.

As for the 3DS outselling the Vita by 10:1 in Japan? Project Diva F and Persona 4G are the only two games on the system the Japanese have snapped up, yet the sales figures suggest it's still struggling? I think Western sales will be where the Vita will (somewhat) flourish. However, Sony aren't doing anywhere near enough to market the system to people. Once the CoD game comes out on it, people will snap it up over here in the West and its sales figures will go up. The PSP still continues to do well in Japan due to the animé-game support it seemingly gets in abundance.
