While it had a rocky moment in the middle, some heavy price-cutting and top-drawer games helped the system sell five million within a year in its native homeland. According to Nintendo, these are legitimate sell-through figures and as predicted, make the 3D-capable console Nintendo's fastest selling console to date. You can take a look at some (translated) self-congratulatory backslapping from Nintendo below.

Domestic sales topped 5 million units, "Nintendo 3DS"

(Minami-ku, Kyoto, President Satoru Iwata) is that the sales in the Japanese market released February 26, 2011 "Nintendo 3DS" will continue to holiday shopping season, was also favorable since the new year yesterday, Nintendo Co., Ltd. At the time (February 19), the sales data was obtained directly from our domestic distribution companies, the estimated cumulative sales (sell-through) is pleased to announce that more than 5 million units.


Estimated cumulative sales in the retail market so far (according to Media Create), the achievement of 500 million, the release date, was 58 weeks in the "Game Boy Advance" at week 56 in the "Nintendo DS" Company, " Nintendo 3DS "is higher than these, and less than 52 weeks per year, has become the fastest achievement of the past as a game platform of the Japanese market.

The future, through the proposal of new software, we aim to spread further.

Well look at that, a handheld is still doing quite well. Despite supposedly being "doomed" to smartphones acording to some crazy people.

Forget the numbers, everything is still doomed. These mean nothing and Nintendo shall die.

Actually Nintendo would just move into something different, they wouldn't die.

I was kidding, of course they would never die. Apple would dump their 100 billion in cash to get those games as exclusives on their app store.

Scarily, you're probably right.

Even more scarily, if a Zelda exclusive title appeared on the App Store I'd probably try to pick up a cheap iPod Touch to play it :(
