Its on track to sell better than the DS, so I`m gonna be the wild card and say 165m.  


Do you have a link with the data for this?  I've been trying to find a comparison.  I suppose I could just break out a calculator, but I am lazy...

I just used the hardware tools on VGC, when I said that though I took into consideration that Pokemon has yet to be released on the console.  If you look at the starting sales of the DS and 3DS they are nearly identical, but I think Pokemon and the 2DS are gonna push the 3DS way over the DS.



better than DS

It doesn't have the innovative hook that drew people en masse to the Nintendo DS, and is going to be affected (at least in a very small way) by smartphone/tablet gaming.

I'm guessing 113.8m

Will eclipse GBA, so I'll say 91 mil for 3DS.
