3DS Breaks Japan Console Sales records
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
The Nintendo 3DS has set another sales record in Japan – further evidence, if it was needed, that it has recovered from its launch troubles.
Over the weekend it crossed the five million sales mark in 52 weeks – a record for Japanese hardware sales.
The previous record holder was the Nintendo DS, which shifted five million in 56 weeks. In third place is the Game Boy Advance, which hit the milestone on week 58.
Below we have a chart showing the 3DS sales against other consoles.
