Nintendo 3DS Dominate Hardware Sales, 3DS Games…Not So Much

And Japan goes wild with the Nintendo 3DS but 3DS games miss the mark in the sales chart.

No surprise here. With a year worth of hype, speculation, excitement and hysteria, didn’t fail to please the Nintendo executives as the Nintendo console dominated the sales chart; and it only needed two days to do so. The Nintendo has sold 374,764 units throughout the week which is expected for a highly marketed and ground-breaking item.

3DS games on the other hand did well too. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to bank the 1st or even the 2nd spot as the 3DS game only mustered a 3rd place finish below PSP entries Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity and SD Gundam G Generation World. The Professor Layton game banked an impressive 119,591 sales, while other 3DS titles got good numbers which catapulted them to the top 10 chart.
