Yeah, it's so late in the DS's life that nothing is really going to bump it. I thought the 3DS Pokemon apps would help sell the 3DS though.

Also 3DS will blow up when the next Pokemon generation is released. Damn.

Pokemon on DS was a miscalculation, IMO.

Look at the GIANT numbers it did, with a minimal 3DS hardware boost. Everyone in Japan already has a DS (probably 3 of them). No one is going to buy a 3DS for B/W 2, they're just playing it on their DS.

What kind of bump would 3DS have gotten if it had a system exclusive Pokemon game.

Pokemon 'might' bump 3DS over a longer period of time I suppose, but generally its sold to the DS user base.

DragonQuest is the new 3DS monster obviously.

Meanwhile Vita...be interesting to see where it goes next week.

That should be a big reason, but it also should be considered that Pokemon players might not be interested on some new 3DS features and will rather play the game on their DS than buying a new console for just a few extras.

Yes, this.

I was very excited for it personally but thought that it had bomb written all over it when it would come to sales.

Really happy to have been wrong.

people say the vita is doing poorly, but there are twice as many games in the top 20 as there are games on the best-selling handheld in japan, and hardware sold nearly 10x the amount even when the best-selling hardware got a 50% boost.

P4G is doing better than P3P, Mario Tennis Open is doing worse than the previous console versions, but better than the previous portable version. MH3G is doing much worse than MHP3, FE is doing much better than the previous few portable releases. All 4 games should be considered successful.

No boost for the DS and a lower hardware increase on the 3DS?

I wonder if people trading in old DS or 3DS systems in preparation for 3DS XL might also have lead to some 'phantom' system sales that we just don't see in these numbers.

Amazing legs for DQM. Is it still supply constrained?

P4tG is going to come fairly close to P3P's 208K total, huh. Userbase ain't everything.

Surely it would have been more surprising if the 3DS had had a significant boost from the release of a game - even a massively popular one like Pokemon - that is playable on its predecessor?

It would be (kinda) like expecting massive Vita sales because Monster Hunter Portable 3rd V2 came out on PSP and was available on PSN, no?
