    In the first week, the 3DS XL has sold 229,635 units in Japan with New Super Mario Bros. 2 selling 430,185 units in retail. To put this to scale, it sold 40% of the Vita's LTD (lifetime sales to date) in a week!

    UK 3DS XL sales on Sunday were just less than 10,000 units outselling the original 2:1.

    Decent sales in the UK considering the handheld/console market is pretty much fucking dead there. Crazy good sales in Japan.

    If I see this turn into another console war, I swear to all that is good and holy that I'll start handing out warnings like they're going out of style.

    Every other Dragon Quest game came over here so I don't see why that won't. And Square Enix usually localizes all their games.

    Considering the date that the 3DS XL was being sold on, not bad I guess.

    It's not a new console launch after all, and to be honest advertising for the system has been very weak over here.
    Only now after the launch am I actually seeing the adverts, and they're actually just a sidenote of the Freakyforms Deluxe ad.

    Eh, Weekly figures aren't news, but in rare occasions such as a console release's sales figures are considered news. In fact I think this is more news than the "rumors" being posted around lately in USN.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    I bought a 3DS XL (EU)

    Transffering everything from my old 3DS to the 3DS XL was piece of cake :)
    Everything whent smooth, even the GBA games from the ambasador thing.
    (The old 3DS gets formatted and everything is gone from it after the transffer)

    Didn't Square say they stopped localizing Dragon Quest? Which meant that if Nintendo wanted it, they had to handle the localizing themselves.

    Yeah not bad sale figures for the system, considering the length of time it's been released.
