With impending big-name releases like Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, not to mention the 3DS' price drop earlier this year, consumers seem increasingly willing to make the transition to the latest Nintendo handheld. The 3DS has sold 1.65 million units in the United States, reports the NPD Group.

To give that figure some added context, the original DS sold 2.37 million units in its first year; approximately half of those sales took place during the "holiday time frame." Nintendo believes the 3DS is "on track to surpass the first-year total of Nintendo DS."

Last month saw sales of more than 250,000 3DS units, nearly 250,000 Wii consoles, and nearly 180,000 DSes. Finally, the Wii is up 8 percent year over year, and the DS is 23 percent over the previous month. Now, how about those games?
