    I think it looks cool. With a little cleaning up, it could be even cooler though.

    At the topic though, I like the sales. If only mobs of people weren't fucking crazy...

    EDIT: Aww, back to the old formatting. *sigh* I thought we had a rebel here.

    Good to see.

    Haha, I contributed to those 3DS numbers by getting the Zelda edition of the handheld.

    Will they? That would be quite a shift in Nintendo's position. I know they lose money on the 3DS, but that's because they had to lower the price because it didn't sell as well as they hoped it would. Launching a console without getting profit from the hardware isn't something Nintendo normally does.

    They aren't losing money with the current price of the 3ds they are losing PROFIT, but that doesn't matter when your selling them like hotcakes. Now all the idiots who actually thought the 3ds would flop can shut the hell up.

    Well, the games didn't have too much in the way of competition on their consoles. The numbers are good, but surprising? Not really.

    Like I said, 3DS itself is a good console on its own (same for the Vita if you want me to drag it in). To me there's no such thing as 'fail' in this instance.

    The only 'fail' to me is when total handheld sales are totally wiped out by smartphones.

    FYI, the name "Black Friday" actually originates from the sales, as it gives retailers a chance to profit. Usually when you're talking numbers, 'black' means positive.
    It has absolutely nothing to do with African-American people.

    Anyways...
    I'm not sure if this is necessarily a good thing. Many people are waiting for a revision (because Nintendo essentially admitted that it's flawed), so the sudden surge would pretty much delay the release of such division, especially if sales hold steady or increase for a while.
