      Prepare for the downvotes.
      Its frowned upon to state facts about Nintendo on the interwebz.
      Dont you know nuffin?

        The 3ds was doing just as bad. Give it some time.

        Now the 3ds is number 1 in the world. You never know what game is arouns the corner

    • Blaz

      Not that surprising, since it’s still has a few games and it is a new sistem (high price tag)

  • http://www.facebook.com/SasoriJr Ivan Junior

    Wii U has no interesting games. For now.

    Ouch dat WiiU numbers… hopefully it will not last for a long time

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Despite the bad WiiU numbers as everyone is pointing out, Nintendo seems to be dominating the top 20 games. Also it appeared to be a slow week anyway. 56k down from 156k seems like a pretty big drop. Also I’m interested to see if the Vita will get a shot in the arm once Senran Kagura comes out.

      wii u is doing fine for right now

  • syaznifaiq

    Maybe Microsft should stop selling 360 in Japan LOL .. even Wii sales is double than 360

    • http://twitter.com/Miketheking75 MTK

      I agree

  • http://twitter.com/Nates4Christ Nate

    It seems the majority of Japanese gamers and I have much different taste in games.

  • MrKappa

    Glad to see FotNS2 doing well, otherwise nothing off note here to me. Except for the fact that the Vita is still suffering.

    Dude, fuck 3DS, it’s getting all the sales, well it’s sony’s fault for not releasing any good games for the vita, outside gravity rush and persona 4… And the 3ds is also more economical so i guess more poor people will buy it.

  • Pyrofrost

    Why are the two versions of the 3DS treated like two completely different pieces of hardware? This isn’t done for the different models of the other consoles.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Hmm. Not sure. Maybe it’s because it has a different name? PS3 slim, for example, is still just called PlayStation 3 officially. Doesn’t say ‘PS3 slim’ on the box. But on the 3DS LL box, it says ’3DS LL’.

      Just a guess, I really don’t know, lol.

      • Pyrofrost

        I see, thanks Sal!

        That probably is the reason, it seems to be the most likely explanation.

  • Ichimaru

    I would never imagine that happening, Vita sold less than the PSP.

  • PrinceHeir

    wow Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 3DS is still selling O___O
