Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Luigi's Mansion 2 has brought the 3DS to the point of no return in America

3DS is the top seller this week. Luigi's Mansion 2 has been out for six weeks now in America according to Vgchartz and Gamewise.co

This shows what a game that people actually want can do for a system. It was not Mario, but Luigi that brought the 3DS out of mediocricy in America. Not saying the system is mediocre, just sales were not what this little handheld deserved. I think there is not going back now. Fire Emblem got people interested, Luigi gave them no choice, and the other games that released recently is the cherry on top.

Congratz Nintendo. Well done. See, you probably could have done without that wretched early price drop. Games brought the people back to you. Including me. ( As I mentioned before)

I dont think it was luigi by himself but also Fire emblem and a year full of releases.

But did the 3DS shoot past the 360 in America with Fire Emblem, or did it happen during Luigi's reign?

Why are you yelling at me? I am just saying that it has made a the turn from people not really caring too much, to being a hit here. I am sure it can go much HIGHER!!!!

It was more upadjustments to NPD numbers.

They were low in NA before them.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

You cant just look at an event isolated from everything else. Purchasing behaviour isnt math, theres lots of factors that influence it positively and negatively.

I'm glad you enjoy Luigi's mansion though. I personally have been on the fence with that one, but it looks good.

I agree. But that is just when I noticed it ahead of the 360. Today in fact. Plus I have noticed it no on the shelves very much over the past few weeks. But I know Fire Emblem was popular as well. So is Lego City Undercover.
