3DS Best Selling System In Japan 2011
And to think, Nintendo was apparently doomed, right?
Don't call it a comeback.
OK, OK, you can definitely call it that. We just learned that Nintendo's 3DS was the highest selling video game system in Japan in 2011, easily defeating its closest rival, Sony's PSP.
Nintendo 3DS: 4,135,739
PSP: 1,960,177 (18,237,108)
PlayStation 3: 1,467,261 (7,417,148)
Wii: 937,451 (12,167,743)
Nintendo DS: 711,204 (32,835,502)
PlayStation Vita: 402,794
Xbox 360: 114,075 (1,520,738)
Quite impressive, considering 3DS got off to a rough start worldwide. Shows what a price cut and a little Mario can do.
