Forums - Sales Discussion - 3DS the only system with hope for YoY growth, can it make it? UPDATED 2 WEEKS TO GO!

Will the 3DS beat its sales for 2011?

Yes of course it will your mad!
Yeah it should beat it fairly easy
Hmm, maybe not, this is closer than I thought
No
Nintendoomed!
I shall have my milky bar now please mother
results!!!

Well done to the 3DS for finishing up YoY.

It only needs 192,169 in the final week of the year to make this target so barring the mayan's being a few weeks out on their apocalypse prediction I'm pretty sure we can all agree that the 3DS has made it.

I was one of the people who didn't think it would achieve this when I started this thread on the 10th December so I guess thats mud in my eye, lol

Happy new year to you all, here's to another 12 months of sales predictions!

I say no because there's nothing coming out between now and the end of the year to really show that it can do that.

if i'm reading that right it will need at least one 1M+ week to get there soo.... no, probably not.

I doubt the 3DS will make it. There just haven't been enough big games for it outside of Japan this year. NSMB2 is great, but it alone can't compete with another Mario platformer AND Mario Kart at once. Especially since 2011 had more moderately big games than 2012.

I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.

Love and tolerate.

Quite depressing really, will mean every platform on the market will end down YoY including one only in its 3rd year, and to make matters worse its a Nintendo handheld which have all been massive success stories so far.

actually it needs to average a little less than 750k a week!!!

it might have a chance because in US we have alot of discount and bundles ex: XL with MK7 at best buy $159.99 Target $129.99 for regular 3ds(not sure if bundled) Next week might hit 700-800k WW and week after if not after that is the biggest christmas sales!!! Not sayingit will but i say 40% chance !!! I hope so!!!!

It'd have to average about 700k per week. With zero notable software releases between now and...February?

I doubt it.

Let's see 3DS' progess from last year Globally

Week Ending Dec.3 2011 (Mario Kart 7)

3DS 794,757 (-11%) 8,929,215

Week Ending Dec.10 2011 (Monster Hunter 3G in Japan)

3DS 1,084,604 (+36%) 10,013,819

Week Ending Dec.17 2011

3DS 1,246,443 (+15%) 11,260,262

Week Ending Dec.24 2011

3DS 1,445,985 (+16%) 12,706,247

This year (at the same time) 3DS is receiving a Mario Kart 7 bundle (Dec. 2), Super Mario 3D Land bundle (already released, but who knows), and a new color Pink 3DS XL (Dec.9). There are also lots of deals this year, a lot better than the Black Friday deals in the pass few weeks. Especially, the $40 pricecut on both the OG 3DS and 3DS XL, so it'll be a challenge for it to top last year. But, I think it'll be close...

Yes, the regular 3DS is bundled. Though, it's the same bundle as last year's just pre-installed. It'll do some good, but not much.
