    1. And Animal Crossing outside of Japan. And Luigi’s Mansion 2. And Monster Hunter 4.
      Really, there’s no reason why 3DS would stop to sell extremely well everywhere.

        1. Speaking of those….a new Zelda and/or Majora’s Mask 3D
          Damn, the 3DS won’t be taking any prisoners….

        2. I wonder what Mario games are going to come out as well this year on 3ds. Even though Nintendo doesnt have to release one, you know they will. I’m guessing a sports game or Mario 3d land 2?

      1. It’s doing so well that I am going to have to upgrade to a 3DSXL when a good color or Limited Edition model arrives in NA

  1. OMG. The 3DS is raping my money, loads of great games coming for it. I wish the Wii U was this interesting, I only care about Pikmin 3 right now.

    1. kind of an unfair comparison , The 3DS had basically no good games at all at launch , until Ocarina 3D and Starfox released…

      The wiiu will start to fly about summer time…

    1. Ahh, good old Jeff. Am I the only one who thinks there should be a Jeff the Killer game? Like Dishonored in a way.

  2. It’s incredible the fact that an Animal Crossing game become the first selling console game for the 3DS, I do not wanna think how good will become the numbers of the 3DS when the Pokemons X/Y come out.

  3. so clearly the 3ds is not a failure like some fucking retarded analysts predicted. like that piece of dog shit pachter or whatever his name is. tsk tsk tsk.

  4. The Nintendo 3DS is gonna sell even MORE when they deliver Luigi’s Mansion: New Moon, Animal Crossing: New Leaf (in North America and Europe), Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS ver.), and Pokemon X & Y.

  5. We can all now rest easy. Read this space, the Wii U is one Nintendo franchise away from Competing with the3DS for Domination of the eighth generation. Monster hunter 3 Ultimate and Pikmin 3 are the catalysts amongst many. Just like the 3DS some people in sony drone land, and delusional xbot island shall cry foul.

  6. yeah it’s not that hard to move that many systems when you’re running unopposed and have games that people want to buy

    1. By “Unopposed,” You realize Nintendo is competing with the Vita, Android, and portible iOS’s, yeah?

      That said, it’s really a miracle Nintendo is doing so well.
      Boils down to, there’s “tech” and there’s “fun.”
      Nintendo has mastered “Fun” so they take gaming by storm.

  7. the limited edition gold nun-chuck available right now!!!!!!!! @club nintendo america for 900 coins get it now b4 its too late!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. YOU’RE the fucking idiot who jerks off more bullshit than Ron Jeremy. iPhone does not count as video game console… it’s just a phone with less processing power than video game consoles from Nintendo, Sony, AND Microsoft.

          1. Wait, Microsoft has a handheld now? Thought so. So clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. The iPhone can produce just as good of graphics as the 3ds can

    1. You dumb unmanly Nintendo babies need to accept the truth. Nintendo will be doomed once the iPhone starts to dominate Japan.

      1. Silly Billy the Prick. You can’t handle the truth. Nintendo will never be doomed and the iPhone is not a fucking portable game console. The Big N have making more millions than you giving heads to your boyfriend Asslus. Get your head out of Asslus’ dried up vagina, little kid!

      2. so if you say nintendo is doomed that means sony is dead in the water and xbox is on a respirator but the truth is tablets and iphones will die soon in the next 2 years cause of there lack of inovation and ios and android games fucking sucks.only dumb fucks like you who could only afford 99 cent games thinks other must really suck to be you. only able to afford cut the rope and angrybirds. lmfao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. 1) Tablets & Phones won’t die you idiot. The only way they’ll die is if something comes out that makes phones & Tablets obsolete.
          2) iOS & Android games aren’t all that bad. Here is just a few I enjoyed:
          -The Walking Dead
          -The Dark Knight Rises
          -Modern Combat 4
          -NOVA 3
          -Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4, 5-7
          -GTA III
          -GTA: VC
          -NFS: Most Wanted
          -Bards Tale
          -Shadow Gun
          -World of Goo
          -Dead Space
          3) Nintendo isn’t doomed, but I wish fanboys would stop being so blind and look at something logically.

    1. The 3DS has almost been out for two years. We got the 3DS in March of 2011. It’s two year anniversary is in two months.

  8. That’s awesome! Now imagine how crazy it will sell once Monster Hunter 4, Dragon Quest VII, Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Pokemon X and Y, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and whatever portable Zelda game is on the way. It will also probably sell well in the west once we get Fire Emblem: Awakening, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Pokemon X and Y. The 3DS might just beat out the DS as the best selling piece of hardware ever.
