The latest Japanese sales figures are in (via NeoGAF) and there's great news for the Nintendo 3DS. The system has been on a beastly roll in its home country, and has actually managed to beat the significantly older PS3's lifetime sales this week. 

The 3DS cleared 211,499 sales this week, for a lifetime figure of 8,799,378 in two years. This is compared to the PS3's 8,716,260 over six years. The Wii U was the biggest seller this particular week, pulling in a figure of 308,142, followed by the 3DS and the PS3 with 36,994. The PSP sold 19,637 while the PS Vita scraped by with 11,039. 

I've been a stern critic of the way Nintendo's handled the 3DS over the past two years, but I can't deny that, for any mistakes made, the system's pulled through and is a freakin' animal right now. Respect due.

Everyone is fabulous in this Japanese New 3DS commercial

Nintendo has a New 3DS TV spot making the rounds, and it shows off some strange new outfits for some iconic Nintendo characters. I'm talking top hat Link, King Pikachu, and a Bowser that's too swanky for his own good. In all...more

Sign me up for 3DS RPG Legend of Legacy

Legend of Legacy sounded pretty good on paper. Honestly, I'm easy ; they had me at '3DS RPG' already. But look at it! Look at that pop-up environmental effect! That music!  Watercolors! Shading! Big heads! The games' &n...more
