    Greek figures would be more interesting given the current climate.

    The nice thing is that I still have to get my first legit Streetpass meet without setting it up, and I usually have my 3DS in standby when I travel outside my city.
    So figure it out how many 3DS we have in Italy...

    So the 3DS consumed Italy's Console Market, as opposed to being consumed by buyers?
    Tsk tsk tsk, I bet the Playstation Vita will have more luck over there. Those Italians are hard to please.

    I doubt they have it. But seriously these fucking Uzbeks are actually mad rich... Plenty of them won the lottery for a US Visa and now came to New York City... And the thing is, is that they came like a year ago and they are all rocking iPads/Macbooks/iPhones, how the hell do they afford that shit (really expensive with data plan lol)....

    LET US!
    Population of Italy in 2011 = 60,000,000
    Population of US in 2011 = 311,000,000
    Units sold in Italy in 11 months = 243,700 or .4% of the population
    Units sold in the US in 9 months = 4,000,000 or 1.3% of the population
