    Nintendo 3DS continued to build momentum in 2013 and finished as the best-selling video game system in the U.S. for the third consecutive month. A strong second month for Animal Crossing: New Leaf helped sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware and software increase by 14 and 45 percent, respectively, over the same time frame last year.

    Great to hear, but hardly newsworthy.

    Because someone has to piss in the cheerios.

    :arrow: Examiner

    ;o;, I beg you don't cry, there is no need to be upset, :ohnoes:, no gaems, le ruse cruise, etc., etc.

    Seriously, though, Nintendo must be pretty satisfied with the turnaround the 3DS managed. They turned a clunker into something actually worth purchasing, with a reasonable price and a solid library of titles. Sony could stand to take a few notes here and there.

    However, I'm a bit skeptical of the Earthbound bit - the game is selling "well," sure, but without any exact numbers, it's impossible to tell how good "well" actually is. Plus, no matter what they are, I have to wonder how much better they'd be if Nintendo didn't (stupidly, in my opinion) exclude it from the 3DS Virtual Console as well. If you want to broaden the audience for your series, it helps to target a broad audience first.

    I've got a feeling so many people are buying them due to Gateway 3DS, lol.
