It’s been revealed that the Nintendo 3DS was the best-selling console in Japan during 2011. The system managed to beat Sony’s popular PlayStation Portable by quite some ease to claim the top spot. We already know that the console has broken the four million barrier in Japan, and with a variety of high-profile games coming this year it’s hard to see the console being overthrown. Here’s the best-selling Japanese hardware of 2011:
- Nintendo 3DS: 4,135,739
- PSP: 1,960,177 (18,237,108)
- PlayStation 3: 1,467,261 (7,417,148)
- Wii: 937,451 (12,167,743)
- Nintendo DS: 711,204 (32,835,502)
- PlayStation Vita: 402,794
- Xbox 360: 114,075 (1,520,738)

How deliriously surprising.
Take that haters!
but just by playing the 3ds you know its the best console around i know i think it is and i got a wii,xbox360 , psp , and gameboy iv even played playstation 3 and even playstation vita looks pretty good but the 3ds wins in a land slide
I love the people that are still calling the system a failure.
Agreed. It’s only just gotten started.
IGN did that for a long time. :/
Now they are on Vita is doomed LOL IGN be doing this nonstop these days.
Obvious fact is obvious :P
I don’t understand the numbers in brackets, what are they? The profit?
I was thinking they were the amount sold overall since those systems launched in Japan
The PSP sold 1,960,177 this year, but 18,237,108 since it went on sale.
Holy crap, does that mean the 3DS sold more than half of the lifetime sales of the PS3 in a year? That’s awesome! lol
not really awesome actually. handheld is big market in japan. just compare NDS and PS3 sales.
PSP is popular?
In Japan, yes.
Yes, mostly thanks to Final Fantasy.
You mean Monster Hunter… it sold, by itself, one quarter of all PSP’s in Japan.
It’s over, Nintendo is finished.
