Wii U had a very solid launch. Now is the big test. A Vita-esque drop of death would be a disaster. Next week's numbers will be VERY telling.

Hopefully Mario and MoHun HD will be enough to keep a good amount of people interested in making a purchase this week and through the holidays.

It finally happened:

3DS: 8.799.378 - in 93 weeks
PS3: 8.716.260 - in 317 weeks

But last year is becoming too "monster" for it to follow.

I don't think we've seen a top 20 without a PSP game for a long time... I mean, an incredibly long time... probably 2004.

Yeah, it really seems like there's no way 2012 3DS can contend with the 'Holy Trinity' 3DS of 2011.  No way it's going to reach the heights of week 50 and 51 of 2011.  Still, pretty decent with just Animal Crossing being the only truly huge title.  Next year should be interesting with Pokemon Gen 6 though (and whatever other surprises they have in store for the holiday then).

And nice, 3DS overtook the PS3 this week!

So that's the PS3 lifetime number in the rear mirror of the 3DS, Wii the next target? By the end of next year? Or even quicker with MH4 on the horizon...

And DQ7 remake...  one-two punch.

I think that's Run for Your Money?  VicViper confirm?

EDITx2: Just google'd it.  It's is indeed Run for Your Money!  This game is a beast!  Posted a 968% increase one week earlier this year, lol.  At the rate it's going, it'll leg it out to 500k maybe.



That is both an amazing market share and sales volume for Nintendo. They will soon be making lots of money again.
