    It is close to overcome PSP sales in Japan, it is more likely to do so after the new Pokémon.

    @1: same here. i love that thing. pricing for 3ds retail games is good too imo. it’s mostly 35 euros brandnew on amazon…and all those great ds games. well deserved. great machine, awesome software.

    So in 3 years it sold 10 million in japan. not bad but not as extravagant as the ds life. I wonder if this will quadruple after they finally discontinue the ds. its been piggy backing their success so far
