Forums - Sales Discussion - Is it safe to say that these 60 3DS games have made a profit?

3DS games cannot have that big of development cost to start with. Some are casual games and some are just ports. 3rd parties should be happy with sales! Plus looks like with in 3-6 months it should have 15 million sellers.

That is 15 games that have broke the million sales mark. Make that possibly 16 with that Lego's game. They always have big legs.
