Nintendo has today released some sales figures for its new 3DS console in the US, and according to the release Nintendo has sold a total of 4.5 million 3DS consoles in the first year since the device was released.
Nintendo has said that this is almost double the 2.3 million first year sales for the Nintendo DS console, so we guess that the 3DS has been a success for Nintendo.
“Nintendo 3DS closes its first year with a lengthy list of accomplishments but we’re still just scratching the surface,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “With a massive lineup of first- and third-party games and more on the way, a budding library of entertainment options and an engaged and growing installed base, Nintendo 3DS has an incredibly bright future. We’re just getting started but this platform is built for the long haul.”
Nintendo also announced that they sold a total of 9 million games for the 3DS in the first year, which compares to 5 million for the original DS console.
