Only about 26,000 this week in North America? And that seems to be the regular baseline for the console in North America (100-160k a month), this isn't an irregular blip it would seem but more of the norm.
You can't say it "haz no gamez!". It now has Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario 2, Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus Uprising, Zelda: OoT 3D, Brain Training, Nintendogs + cats, Professor Layton, Paper Mario, Mario Tennis, Luigi's Mansion 2, Fire Emblem, Style Savvy, Skylanders, Monster Hunter 3G, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid 3D, Resident Evil (x2), Super Street Fighter IV, Castlevania, etc.
It's gotten an $80 price cut. It's even gotten a hardware revision. Nintendo has released several color variants.
People look at the 3DS' performance in Japan and gloss over the fact that compartively it's doing quite poorly in North America and Europe (though Europe is a bit better) compared to where the DS was once it got a good library going. Of course it's better than (lol) Vita, but an inanimate carbon rod would probably outsell the Vita in the West at this rate.
