certainly hoped that the 3DS would take over and sell as well as the DS
had before it. So far, that just hasn’t happened though with the 3DS
just not making the cut with consumers staying away from the portable
console so far. The 3DS is selling better than it was thanks to the
price cut from a few months back.
Nintendo is thankfully still selling the DS in droves though with the portable now racking up 50 million units
sold in the US since its launch. The 3DS is picking up a little steam
with more games coming that are appealing to gamers. The 3DS has moved
450,000 units since the price was slashed.
Just about all of those 3DS consoles sold also saw buyers picking up
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as well with that title selling
over 500,000 copies. I think the console will pick up again when the
Mario Kart 3D game launches too.
