With this week’s Media Create sales from Japan, the Nintendo 3DS has surpassed the Nintendo Wii in lifetime sales. Nintendo’s 3D handheld has continued to annihilate the competition in the hardware category, as week after week it hangs on to the top spot without a whisper of a refusal to budge. Sales of Monster Hunter 4 over the past couple of weeks have propelled the handheld to further heights as well, but the constant flow and ebb of 3DS games within the charts has also given the hardware a solid platform to rest on.
Currently, the Nintendo 3DS is sitting high and mighty on sales of 12,752,73, while the Wii takes a back seat at 12,698,878 – an incredible feat for a system that’s been on the market for approximately, or just over, 2.5 years when compared to the Wii’s seven, since its launch in 2006. The Nintendo 3DS is sure to reach dizzying sales heights in the future, what do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
