Nintendo 3DS Sales Fall Short Of Original DS Sales

first_imgReports have been going around for the past couple weeks stating that the 3DS has fallen just short of the original DS sales. This appears to be confirmed now that the sale numbers have been released; the Nintendo 3DS sold 400,000 consoles in its first week in the U.S. The original Nintendo DS sold a 100,000 more than the 3DS in its first week of sales. Despite the lower sales record, Nintendo still has hopes for the first month of sales. Nintendo originally expected a record breaking amount of sales during its first month. We’ll have to wait and see if the sales improve. Until then, Nintendo still seems pleased with the first week of sales. One fact has been cleared, the quake did not affect Nintendo, so that cannot be blamed for the lower sales. Nintendo made sure to make that clear during the release of the US first week sales numbers. Via Xbit Labslast_img
