  3. Well the wii u may be down but that 3ds is still taking names. I think nintendo is still number one here. Sony is equal with them in my eyes…only on opposite sides, the console is there but the vita is still in bad position, the wii u is in bad position, be the 3ds is killing top notch and first place. With 3ds in first place killing still even if its japan, nintendo is number one…the truth hurts guys. But like the rest of the people who don’t see the competition, its the games that matter to me…so have you silly wars that you believe exists, I will be having it all anyways.

  4. What i don’t get is million of copies sold on PS4 consoles, but games don’t sold that much, we can see how there are many games from 3DS, even some WiiU ones that have +1 million copies sold, and PS4 hardly reaches them.

  5. I really do hope I can place a Switch right next to my PS4 in the next 6 months or so. Then again, maybe I’ll wait for the alternate colors to come out which apparently won’t come til a year or so later.
