Good to hear.

Nintendo has announced that nearly 6 million 3DS consoles, both the original and the XL model, have been sold in the US.

Worldwide game sales are up to 64.45 million units from launch until September 30.

In total, Nintendo has sold more than 22 million 3DS units globally as of September 30.

To coincide with the sales announcements, Nintendo has announced a limited flame red 3DS bundle, which includes a copy of Super Mario 3D Land preinstalled.

It will retail for $170, and will be available during the Black Friday post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy.

Outsold by Japan, not too surprising. (it should outbeat the PS3 LTD there though very soon).

22 million is healthy.
Hopefully it can replicate last holidays insanity.

I think it's outselling the Original DS at this point but the DS crazy sales with the Lite, MKDS and NSMB are right around the corner.

2.2 was in June or something, it's probably 2.6+ by now at least (despite selling crazy low)

The worldwide figures (64.45 million software, 22 million hardware) seem to be sell-in numbers from last quarter's financial results, whereas the 6 million figure seems to be sell-through in the U.S.

About the same right now, but this is the same timeframe that DSlite came out and 3DS will probably fall behind.

Anyone know what the Vita has sold in NA? Last NPD, people estimated around 800k-820k. That correct?

The main problem with the 3DS was the dramatic price cut in the beginning, since than its sales have been fine. Even if it is selling inline with the DS it is still a disappointment.

Fantastic. It has a much better lineup and it's been well-supported by Nintendo 1st and 2nd parties.

Will be interesting to see if Vita can ever reach the 3DS' LTD at this point. Hell, it'll be interesting to see if its WW numbers can reach the 3DS' LTD in US or Japan.

3DS needs a DSlite boost to keep up with the ds. I doubt it will have one though.

Nintendo is Doomed 3: Ressurection of Evil. Good to hear, hopefully more third parties get on board as 2013 is looking pretty scarce outside of first parties, Monster Hunter and Castlevania.

Also, as soon as it gets Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon 3D, we should see a big boost.

yes, but this is nothing new for recent Nintendo and especially not handheld Nintendo. they're always underpowered compared to competition. there's really no comparison when it comes to power, the Vita is obviously much better in that regard.

I love the system but the sales aren't that great. In the end of the three year mark 3DS will probably trail GBA and DS in regards to sales numbers. Great system IMO its just not lighting a spark here in NA like it is in Japan. Even over there 3DS will start getting beat by DS around the holidays this year.

It'll sell above GBA, but way below DS. Because really, DS numbers are simply not happening again.
