With recent report of 3DS sales and Price cut I decided to see if the system was really doing bad compared to the DS. The DS had a rough start compared to the GBA and people use this as a reason why 3DS sales are low. So let's see how they compare. As of right now

A+, much needed



Another thing to consider is that the DS debuted in the holiday season in NA and Japan and much later in other markets (Feb-March for Europe/Australia) while the 3DS launched everywhere in March.

Great idea though! We definitely need something like this around here to put things in clearer perspective.

Just need to check but you arn't just compairing worldwide totals from 'week one' are you, cause the DS had a much more staggered launch then the 3DS so your 26 week figure would include much less of the DS's European sales compared to 3DS.

On the other hand the original DS would have had a holiday period however much sales that might have brought in.

I'm using Wikipedia as a source so it may very well be wrong.

I just checked it out and it has it correct! Feb. is listed for Japan, though all the others are March so you probably just glanced right passed it. 0_0 hehe ;-p

I just checked it again and I'm still seeing Dec. 2 for Japan and Nov. 21 for NA. I'm looking at the right info bar in this article:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_ds
