Nintendo 3DS Sells 4.5 Million Units in its First Year on the Market

| | Comments (0)
NintendoNintendo wants everyone to know that the 3DS, since its launch on March 27, 2011, has sold 4.5 million units. Nintendo is eager to compare that to the DS, which had sold around $2.3 million units at roughly the same point in its lifecycle. That comparison isn't entirely apt, as the 3DS was selling poorly and experienced a massive price cut after only a few months. Despite the unit's ability to display 3D without glasses, it hasn't been the runaway hit that Nintendo was hoping for, and is fighting an increasingly uphill battle against smartphones and tablets.
