The Nintendo 3DS continues to sit at the top of the Japanese hardware chart for the third consecutive week. Nintendo managed to sell a respectable 60,781 units putting it ahead of Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. However, there does appear to a drop in sales for the 3DS as it managed to sell 196,077 units two weeks ago when the price drop came into effect.
LW TW Platform Weekly Sales Last Week 1 1 3DS 60,781 105,639 3 2 PS3 33,141 40,901 2 3 PSP 31,330 29,666 4 4 Wii 11,342 18,256 5 5 DS 5,729 8,031 6 6 PS2 1,580 1,789 7 7 360 1,393 1,427
And PSP Go? Like 7 sales or something XD
It sold a mere 20 units.
More than expected :O
20 more than expected to be exact
I see what you did there.
Yeah, the PSP Go is just too small to be comfortable. I’ve never really known someone who has had a small system like Go or the Gameboy Micro.
I did know someone with a Micro. I never heard about it untill she had one.
I have a micro. It’s useful in homeroom (:P), and it has removable skins which I thought was pretty cool. Eh, personal preference I guess. I don’t think the micro has any form of connectivity though which sucks.
And i hope it keeps it right there until next year.
Pingback: Nintendo 3DS stays top in Japan for another week
Just wondering why the U.S. doesn’t have those kinda stats. I for one would like to see how many 3DS’s we’re sold after the price cut here.
in usa xbox 360 & ps3 are sold the most
Yea because they still have a lot of time to catch up to the Wii
you do know why the wii sold a lot, right? granparents and kids… oh and nintendo fans.
Don’t forget Engaged women!
Of course! who couldnt forget that!
They have monthly stats, but some retailers don’t participate and report.
3DSin the US:
91K for the same week
over 100k week before that(i think)
Ouch! That’s pretty much a 40% drop! No bueno.
Microsoft must be pissed that Sony’s PS2 made more sales
It’s being discontinued so they’re not pissed… by the end of the year it should be pretty much all gone and sell as much as as the PSP Go, if not less (or at all).
It had a long life…
thats even worse that its been discontinued and it has more sales
Whoa! This is awesome news.
Let’s see what happens when we get more games.
When the games come all will hear the “cha-ching cha-ching”!
The 3DS will officially become a 3D money printer.
You Really Don’t Have To Capitalize Every Word Like This.
also, its sad the japanese would rather buy an outdated piece of crap like the PS2 over the Xbox 360.
It’s called the header, moron. That’s what people usually do.
But I agree, the 360 is the best console in the past two gens (behind the GC only by a bit) IMO.
The Wii supersedes the Xbox 360 by far.
well i dont exactly agree with cory, is a matter of opinion. and @calvinnj sales dont say much about how good a system is. the psp sold a good 70 million, but you dont see ppl with it much.
Because the psp kinda…. Sucks…. because sony thought they Don’t need to implement any portable features into a portable and just focused on graphics….
Plus there was no support
yea thats kinda harsh, it still had some great games. and I quote “just focused on graphics ” , well technology only moves forward my friend.
I’d argue the PS3 has far greater utility than the 360 and thus, is the superior console in my opinion. For online gaming though, I’ll have to say the 360 wins by far, it’s closer now than the first year or so that the PS3 was out.
Raymond, I’ve already stated in a previous comment thread that you’ll be banned if you keep repeating the same thing over and over in comment threads and on Twitter. I’ve explained that it’s a headline. It’s For Emphasis. End of.
The Flame Red 3DS and Star Fox 64 3D release on September 9th right? I wouldn’t be surprised if sales spike even higher because of that.
Both the Flame Red 3DS and Star Fox 64 3D are already out in Japan.
im curious of how sales go when ps vita comes… but for now good for nintendo!
shut up troll, ninteno domnates evry time.
yea u stupd troll psvita suck games are sucksh, nintendo is fun, psvita is only graphics.
is it a problem if i correct you guys? no? then ok:
1. lets start with the obvious, I am not a troll, just because i made a question that has the word psvita in it doesnt make it an offensive term to your cult of the nintendo fanboys.
2. second, ps vita doesnt suck its actually a good portable, 3ds and psvita are in diffrent league because of there prices, so dont feel like i said something bad of your precious handheld.
3. third, “nintendo is fun, psvita is only graphics” thats probably the most stereotypical thing i herd, good visuals enhance gameplay, and theres lots of good fun games on plastation. to name a few uncharted, little big planet…but who cares you might say they all copied from nintendo.
4. nintendo doesnt dominate eveything, they where actually in a crysis some months ago and possibly right now too.
5. i now i might have some small grammer problems (lower case “i” and some spelling) but you guys really have difficulties typing.
try to learn some.
^^^this 3 times biatch
@green gorlila you ^this 3 times why? w.e ^^^^this
ugh I’m a nintendo fan and fanboys like these make nintendo look bad. he’s not a troll for wondering how vita sales will go. Can’t we just enjoy video games?
