    Great news for everyone who loves handheld gaming!

    EDIT: I noticed the ban on weekly sales news. This isn't weekly sales. It's a story about how Nintendo has turned around the bad fortunes of the 3DS launch and is now crushing their competition outselling 4 devices combined.

    Hi Joe88

    This story is more about Nintendo turning around the bad 3DS launch. It's not really about weekly sales but rather about Nintendo's reversal of fortunes.

    That's a big story. Remember all the bad press last year? Oh man, what a mess.

    That is a pretty big turnaround from where it was last year.. That being said, it is of course only for Japan. I am kind of curious as to what the global figures would be like

    They're not crushing their competition, they're selling better than the ancient PSP and PS3 everybody and their dog already has and the twice as expensive Vita. Besides, this was already posted, thus the tread shall be reported.

    Apparently its doing very well WW as well. I'm glad they turned things around. I never thought it would happen. It almost seemed like the press hated the 3DS.

    But then again, they hated the DS when it launched. I just think they thrive on drama, and now that the machine is a success they'll all say "well we always knew it would succeed."

    Yeah, sure... haha!
