Nintendo announced today that the Nintendo 3DS is has reached the five million sales mark. They also claim that it’s the fastest selling system, comparing it with the GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS and the Wii with the following chart.
This is some good propaganda, ignoring all other consoles in the past. I won’t start arguing against them, thou I’d like to see more comparisons with all other major consoles.
What I’m trying to say is that Nintendo’s giving out figures without proper comparison. Only other handheld consoles should be applicable to the list, but Nintendo opted to showcase their other console figures. Take a look at the other console figures and decide by yourself whether or not 3DS is a success. Just remember, Nintendo’s still selling the console at a loss.
