Reports: Nintendo 3DS sales in Japan break monthly record in December
This is also the seventh month in a row the 3DS has topped hardware sales.
The PS Vita, which released in the middle of December in Japan, sold 402,794 units. But it's unfair to compare these two new systems since the PS Vita released on Dec. 17. The Enterbrain tracking period for December is Nov. 28-Dec. 25.
The big reason for the 3DS sales surge comes from Nintendo releasing three big guns for the holiday season. Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 have already topped 1 million sales each in Japan alone, and Monster Hunter 3G likely has hit that, too.
No one can complain anymore about the 3DS having no games.
