    This makes the 3DS one of the most successful console launch in Germany.

    Here, in Poland, Sony Poland said that Vita in its launch week sold more than 3DS during the whole 2011. Vita since launch sold ~4 000 units. It means that 3DS sold less than 4k units in Poland and behind west border, in Germany it sold 750k.
    Difference in sales blows my mind.
    Poland is Sony's stronghold, Nintendo has 1% of market. Here everyone thinks that Nin sucks. Nobody has NDS (they even don't know what DS is) and PSP is way better "because graphics".

    I think the Vita sold 80.000 units till now in Germany, which ain't bad, but not really strong either.
    DS sold 9,7 million units in Germany and psp around 3 Million.

    "shattered" is a word used negatively.

    Nice to know it's doing well in Europe, I want to know about the total world sales of 3DS as of now (last records).

    But still such numbers that shatter records are quite good.

    yea not really. we are 80 million people, so percent wise there are more 3DS in Germany than in the US. As far as I know, UK and France, the only other strong Video Game buying Countries, beside North-America and Japan, have lower sales. The only exception to all of this is japan, but well, yea, its japan.

    I know you're trolling, but just saying so the others know the real Deal.

    I am not trolling, that was a completely legitimate observation, what would make you think that was trolling?

    I showed you clearly why what yous aid was not true, so telling me that you were not trolling means you are stupid or ignorant.
    Thats why, lets better say you're trolling, right? and as every troll is also ignorant, lets also add this to the last post you made.

    Ok. So I don't know how much Germany sells in video games and I'm either stupid or trolling? And I simply said that it doesn't seem like much compared to every other place -I usually see sales from, therefore I said the it doesn't seem like much, so once again explain to me how making an observation is trolling?

    SOooo..... I did this in Valwins thread about Italy's 3DS sales, I guess I'll do it here too. (Emigre even used the same joke he used from that thread)

    Population of Germany: 80,000,000
    3DS units sold: 750,000 or about .94 % of the population.

    Population of USA: 311,000,000
    3DS units sold: 4,500,000 or about 1.47 % of the population.

    Also France has sold 874,000(population of 65M = 1.34%) and we don't the exact numbers for the UK yet but if Spain and Italy are in the 300,000 area, the UK must have topped 1,500,000
