The graph is in disagreement with the text in the article. According to the graph, the GBA almost matched the rates of the 3DS. Unless the GBA just stopped selling for 6 weeks after this graph is cut off and the DS took off and sold over a million units in 4 weeks after being out for a year, something must be confused there.

Anyways, price cuts are wonderful things it seems. The 3DS was selling like complete shit, then a nice price cut, and within eight weeks it had doubled its sales from the previous 40.

well that's because most of the people buying nintendo are parents buying for kids. when i was a kid i would never get anything that cost over $100 unless it was my xmas and bday present combined (ps2 being the only time it happened). Where as sony and microsoft know that its a bunch of 20+ who are dumb enough to buy things right away -.- luckily i wait for price drops i'm not buying $100 games (dlc included) psh

I'm glad to see that 3DS is making an incredible milestone despite all odds! It's a message to the Vita that Nintendo still rules supreme in the handheld market!

One moment in time for humble 3DS

I think the release of some actual games did more for the 3DS than the price cut did; at the very least they worked together. The cut was more than ~10 weeks ago and that's when the sales really started climbing. It could have a lot to do with Christmas too, though.

Also, I miss my GBA
They were so comfy in your hands...

it's good to see but i still can't help but notice that some out there will allways see this as a competition between fans :/
a gamer friend of mine was actualy angry that the psp was doing less good then the DS.
i think we need more handhelds
