  1. I think k the main headline here, is that everything except for the Normal 3DS did better than last week. Be it by 1 (Like the New Nintendo 3DS LL) or by 2501 (Like the PS4) Heck, even the Xbox One is doing better (Granted, 70 for the week isn’t anything to be Proud of)

    1. No. It’s been selling like this for a very long time. Keep in mind this is only Japan. I guess they just don’t care for the Xbox One in Japan.
