Enterbrain has revealed via Famitsu that the Nintendo 3DS has sold an incredible 10 million units after just 98 weeks of the system being on sale in Japan. The console shifted a colossal amount when Animal Crossing: New Leaf was released on the Nintendo 3DS on November 8th.



  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.


    • 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…


  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. 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.


    • 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.


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


  6. 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.
